Apollo 16 —Young Salutes the Stars and Stripes 

Catalogue Note

SIGNED and INSCRIBED by CHARLIE DUKE: "CHARLIE DUKE | Apollo 16 LMP"

Originally, Duke was slated to serve as backup Lunar Module Pilot on Apollo 13.  Just before the mission, however, he caught German measles from a friend's child, and inadvertently exposed the prime crew to the disease. Duke made his voyage to the moon in 1972 on Apollo 16, and captured the present image after asking John Young to give him a "Navy salute."
