When The Rock Snapped This Picture With A Vietnam Veteran, He Got Much More Than A Kind Smile

"Every hard core gym around the world has one 'OG' of the gym."

When The Rock was leaving the gym a few days ago, one special person decided to ask him for a picture.

That man, he said, was 73-year-old Vietnam veteran, John Henderson.

The Rock explains in his Instagram post that as he was getting in his truck, Henderson said, "At some point I'd like to snap a pic with you before you leave our town."

He naturally obliged and said back, "Well how bout we do it right now!?" 

However, as the real-life Hercules was driving away, he decided he had to go back and ask Henderson for a picture himself.

He explains his thinking, saying he went back to "grab a pic with my phone with that OG who paved the way for so many of us."

Henderson was flattered that the movie star came back to take a picture with him, telling him, "Ya know I've been around this world my whole life and been inspired by a lot of things. This really makes me happy."

However, The Rock had some kind words himself, telling Henderson, "I appreciate you and all you do. You inspire all of us to keep on keepin' on."

As The Rock was driving away again, Henderson had one more important piece of advice, telling him, "Dwayne ... nutrition. Don't forget your nutrition. It's the most (important) thing we can do."

The Rock emphatically responded with a "Yes sir, I won't!"

Johnson finished his post with an important life lesson for all of us. He wrote, "Made me think that no matter where they come from — military, the streets, sports etc.. there ain't nothin' like that OG wisdom that can only come from years of experience."

Agreed.

Every hard core gym around the world has one "OG" of the gym. The man everyone knows and respects 'cause after all these years, he still "gets after it" daily. 73yr old, Vietnam vet, John Henderson is that man. I was leaving the gym after my early morning workout and he was coming in and said "At some point I'd like to snap a pic with you before you leave our town". I said "Well how bout we do it right now!?" He took out his phone and we took the pic. He said "God bless you and thank you". I said "You're welcome and have a good day John". I got in my truck and started to drive off. Buuuut then I thought "You know what let me go back and grab a pic with my phone with that OG who paved the way for so many of us". When he came back out he said, "Ya know I've been around this world my whole life and been inspired by a lot of things. This really makes me happy". I said "I appreciate you and all you do. You inspire all of us to keep on keepin' on". The best part was once we took this pic, he started to walk away and I got back up in my truck.. and he turned back and said "Dwayne... nutrition. Don't forget your nutrition. It's the most thing we can do." I smiled and said "Yes sir, I won't!" and I drove off. Made me think that no matter where they come from - military, the streets, sports etc.. there ain't nothin' like that OG wisdom that can only come from years of experience. #OGWisdom #MrHenderson #ThatsThatGooooodShit
