Throwback Photos Of Young Uncle Si In The Military

Duck Commander / Facebook

If you’re a fan if Duck Dynasty, you know that the famous Uncle Si served in the military. He often brought up his time in ‘Nam (Vietnam) and told lots of stories about his service.

He was drafted into the United States Army during the Vietnam War and retired as a Sergeant First Class (E-7) in 1993. After he retired, he got a job from his brother, Phil, at Duck Commander making the reeds that go inside each duck call. The rest, they say, is history…and we got to see it all thanks to Duck Dynasty!

During one episode of the family reality show, Si was honored with the opening of an exhibit  about his military career at the Chennault Aviation and Military Museum in Monroe, Louisiana.

We’ve seen this episode, and many of Si’s accolades and accomplishments, but we have never actually seen a photo of him from that time in his life…until now!

In a post in honor of Veteran’s day, Duck Commander shared two photos of Si when he was in the Army and fans can’t believe their eyes. We are used to seeing a long-haired, long-bearded man with unkempt hair under his hat, but in these photos, he was clean-cut, clean-shaven, and sporting the famous Robertson dimple!

See the photo below.

Here are some responses to the photo:

“That is a good looking man right there. The Lord knew what he was doing when he made uncle Si.

“Dang… that’s a hot tamale right there!

“What a beautiful heart melting smile”

“Uncle Si was a hottie! John Luke looks just like him. Thank you sir for your service!”
