Duane Wallace

Duane Wallace was born in 1963, at Dewitt Army Hospital in Ft. Belvoir, VA while his father was in the Army. He moved to Florida when he was less than 1 year old and currently resides in Jacksonville, FL with his wife and 4 children.

He is an avid sportsman, and the principle organizer of the annual Wounded Warriors in Action Gator Hunts. Duane also serves as the senior guide in charge, responsible for coordinating and executing WWIA gator hunts.

Duane never served in the military, but is no stranger to veterans. Numerous family members have served, including his father, uncles, father-in-law, sister-in-law and cousin. Their experiences span from the Vietnam War to most recently, Special Forces service in both Afghanistan and Iraq.

Duane's patriotism and commitment to conservation is deeply rooted in his experiences growing up in the outdoors. His study of the Founders of our great nation, and his involvement in the Boy Scouts of America (where he earned the rank of Eagle Scout), have served him well and helped shaped his ethos as a sportsman.

Duane's passion is awareness of the founding principles of this great nation, showing appreciation to those who have served, and preservation of our American heritage for today and future generations.
