Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson Shows Amazing Respect To A Vietnam Veteran At His Gym
The Rock is one of the most recognizable celebrities in America. He rose to prominance as one of the biggest wrestlers in the history of WWE.
His success in the ring translated into success on the big screen, as well as on TV where he stars in the upcoming “Baywatch” remake and HBO’s “Ballers.”
Aside from his amazing success, Johnson is also a class act and a huge supporter of our veterans. Recently, both those qualities shined through in an Intsagram post in which he described what happened at his local gym following his early morning workout routine.
Here is what the caption to the post was, followed by a picture of the post below:
Every hard core gym around the world has one “OG” of the gym. The man everyone knows and respects ’cause after all these years, he still “gets after it” daily. 73yr old, Vietnam vet, John Henderson is that man. I was leaving the gym after my early morning workout and he was coming in and said “At some point I’d like to snap a pic with you before you leave our town”. I said “Well how bout we do it right now!?” He took out his phone and we took the pic. He said “God bless you and thank you”. I said “You’re welcome and have a good day John”. I got in my truck and started to drive off. Buuuut then I thought “You know what let me go back and grab a pic with my phone with that OG who paved the way for so many of us”. When he came back out he said, “Ya know I’ve been around this world my whole life and been inspired by a lot of things. This really makes me happy”. I said “I appreciate you and all you do. You inspire all of us to keep on keepin’ on”. The best part was once we took this pic, he started to walk away and I got back up in my truck.. and he turned back and said “Dwayne… nutrition. Don’t forget your nutrition. It’s the most thing we can do.” I smiled and said “Yes sir, I won’t!” and I drove off. Made me think that no matter where they come from – military, the streets, sports etc.. there ain’t nothin’ like that OG wisdom that can only come from years of experience. #OGWisdom #MrHenderson #ThatsThatGooooodShit
