Which brings us to Chewbacca, or actor Peter Mayhew, who, feeling #nostalgic, posted some never-before-released photos from his years as the lead-Wookie from the Star Wars saga.

In conclusion, America is a helluva country, with heroes and villains providing a lifetime of laughter and tears every single day. Here’s to the ride.
