Duck Dynasty ’s Uncle Si Robertson stars in Stephen Baldwin’s war drama Faith of Our Fathers.
Directed by Carey Scott, the movie is about two sons on a road trip to learn about their fathers. It is set in 1969 during Vietnam the War, where the two young fathers report to duty. One father has a strong faith and the other one is a cynic. Years later, their sons, Wayne and John Paul, meet as strangers and they form a friendship as they try to retrace their fathers’ footsteps.
Guided by handwritten letters from their fathers from the battlefield, they embark on an unforgettable journey to The Wall-the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. Along the way, they discover the devastation of war cannot break the love of a father for his son.
Si Robertson, a Vietnam veteran himself, says he is proud to be part of a movie that promotes patriotism.
The Duck Dynasty star, who plays a gas station clerk in the war drama, believes the movie is important because it shows the many sacrifices made by the men who fought in wars.
Si Robertson wrote on his Facebook page: “Faith of Our Fathers does its best to honor the men who gave up their lives for their country. Hey, it’s a must see Jack!”
Faith of Our Fathers, also starring Stephen Baldwin, Kevin Downes and David A.R. White, will premiere on July 1st on the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War.
Duck Dynasty’s Si Robertson celebrates his 67th birthday on Monday, April 27th. Silas Merritt Robertson is Phil’s youngest brother, a Vietnam War veteran, and preacher.
He works at Duck Commander, making the reeds that go into every duck call.
Si Robertson is kind of like the Kramer of Duck Dynasty. He is known for his storytelling, his constant use of the phrase “Hey, Jack!” and his ever-present blue plastic cup, which his mother sent him while he was stationed in Vietnam.
He is often filmed carrying around a jug of sweet tea and he loves pizza.
Si Robertson married his longtime girlfriend Christine Raney (who is not featured on Duck Dynasty) in 1971. They have two children together – Trasa Cobern and Scott Merritt Robertson – and eight grandkids.
Duck Dynasty‘s Mia Robertson is undergoing yet another surgery later on Friday, March 27, to repair a cleft palate and lip. Mia Elaine Robertson, 11, was born with a bilateral cleft lip and palate.
Her family asks for prayers on Duck Commander Facebook page: “On March 27, our sweet Mia will have another surgery. It will be a major surgery which will involve breaking her jaw. We ask that you please start praying for her now and continue for 6-10 weeks after. It’s a long recovery with a liquid diet. Missy has a necklace that she is selling to benefit MiaMoo fund and we ask that you wear it for her now and until after the surgery. Below is the link for the necklace. #BeBraveAndKeepGoing http://www.missyrobertson.com/mia-moo-jewelry.”
Uncle Si Robertson asks his fans to pray for little Mia. He wrote on his Facebook page: “Hey, Mia needs your prayers. She’ll be going into surgery on Friday. She’s also selling some necklaces to help other children with cleft palate surgeries.”
If you sign up for the Duck Commander Cruise before March 31st, then your excursion is FREE, Duck Dynasty’s Si Robertson announced on Facebook.
The new Duck Commander event will take place in Bahamas from October 22 to 26 and features Phil, Si, Miss Kay, Jep, Jessica, Alan and Lisa Robertson and their friend Justin Martin and John Godwin.
The Duck Commander website describes the event:
“Are you ready to visit the Bahamas with the Robertsons? Join Phil, Miss Kay, Si and some of the Robertson family on a cruise adventure to Nassau and Freeport, Bahamas.

There will be time to ask questions of some of the Robertsons on everything that you have wanted to know about their family. And we elected Phil “The President” on the last cruise, we can’t wait to hear what he’s got to say this year!
In addition to the Robertsons, there will be fun in the sun as we travel to some incredible ports!”
Author Jimmy Frank, the brother of Duck Dynasty’s Phil and Si Robertson, died unexpectedly from a heart attack over the weekend.
James Francis Robertson died on Friday, November 21, at the age of 78. He was born on February 28, 1936.
He graduated from Vivian High School and LSU with a degree in journalism, and was affectionately known to friends and family as Jim or Jimmy Frank.
Jimmy Frank served in the US Air Force before attending LSU. After retiring from a successful career in journalism and public relations, he was able to pursue his passion for writing especially in the area of historical fiction. Although Jim was an avid LSU alumni and Boston Red Sox fan, his first loves were God and his family. Those around Jim enjoyed this man with a kind heart whose spirit was larger than life.
The announcement was made on Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson’s Facebook page: “Please pray for the Robertson family. Phil & Si’s brother, Jimmy Frank, passed away this weekend. Please pray for Connie his wife, their sons & families. It’s tough to lose such a wonderful man so quickly, he had a heart attack. It will hard on them this week & for a long time after the funeral. Pray for strength for all of them.”
Jimmy Frank and his Connie lived in Elgin, Texas.
Phil and Si Robertson’s parents, Merritt and James Robertson, had seven children: Jimmy Frank, Harold Gene, Judy Gimber, Tommy, Phil, Si and Jan. All of the brothers and sisters graduated from college and some obtained master’s degrees.
Their brother, Harold Gene Robertson, died on October 27, 2017, at the age of 74. Phil and Si Robertson also lost their parents and sister Judy Gimber.
James Francis Robertson was a loving husband, father, brother, son and friend to many. He is survived by his wife of 28 years, Connie Robertson, sons Jim and wife Masako Robertson, Stephen and wife Holli Robertson, Matthew and wife Su Robertson, Quentin Rance and wife Celeste, David Robertson, John Robertson and eight grandchildren.
The funeral service will be held at 11AM on Tuesday, November 25, at Elgin Church of Christ, 703 N Avenue C, Elgin, TX 78621. Graveside service will be at Pleasant Grove Cemetery.

Duck Dynasty’s Uncle Si and his nephew Willie Robertson faced off in the ultimate competition to win a wood chipper.
The June 25 episode of Duck Dynasty proved who was the manliest of men when Si and Willie Robertson faced off in a competition to win the ultimate prize: a wood chipper.

For some reason, Mountain Man came up with the genius idea to host his own contest – “Hands on a Hardbody” – on his radio show. However, he didn’t think his plan through all the way because there was only one problem: he did not have the money to purchase a truck for the competition.
Mountain Man stopped by Willie Robertson’s office to ask for a donation, which Willie was apprehensive about at first until his wife, Korie, convinced him to hand over $1,000 to help out a friend.
The next day, Si and Willie Robertson head over to Mountain Man’s house, which unbeknownst to them was the site of the competition. To their surprise, Mountain Man decided to swap the truck in for a wood chipper as the grand prize.
When no one else showed up for the competition, Si and Willie Robertson ended up facing off with each other.
The competition came to an all time high when Uncle Si tried to psych Willie out.
Jase Robertson joined in the fun when he began to provide a running commentary about something “magical” – Willie’s tinkle dance.
