USAF Brigadier General (Ret.) Charles Duke, Lunar Module Pilot, served on the Apollo 11 support Crew & Capcom, Apollo 13 Backup Lunar Module Pilot, Apollo 16 Lunar Module Pilot, and the Apollo 17 backup Lunar Module Pilot. In 1972, aboard the Apollo 16, he became the 10th man to walk on the lunar surface. Led by a desire to serve his country, Duke attended the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.

Following graduation, he was commissioned into the U.S. Air Force, and thus began a life-long love of flying. Over the years as fighter pilot, test pilot, and then encouraged by his commandant Chuck Yeager to become an Apollo astronaut, this love of adventure grew to the pinnacle of achievement when on April 20, 1972, he, along with John Young, landed on the surface of the moon. Their stay on the moon was a record-setting 71 hours and 14 minutes. Duke and Young spent more than 20 hours exploring the moon. This involved emplacement and activation of scientific equipment and experiments, the collection of nearly 213 pounds of rock and soil samples, and the evaluation and use of Rover-2 (their lunar car) over the roughest surface yet encountered on the moon. Duke filmed the only pictures made of the rover in action - its record setting speed was 17 kilometers per hour. Apollo 16 returned to a heroes welcome, with Duke, Young and Mattingly each receiving the NASA Distinguished Service Medal.
