Dr. Red Duke remembered through videos

"From The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, I'm Dr. Red Duke"

Tonight, The Houston Chronicle reported that Dr. James "Red" Duke Jr. died of natural causes at the age of 86. The Texas proud doctor most importantly founded Houston's Life Flight helicopter ambulance system. In addition, he was made famous by his local TV reports across the country.

Here are some great Red Duke clips I found on YouTube - from a tribute by his medical colleagues, a montage of his television news work, to the story of his presence at Dallas' Parkland Hospital when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated.
