The Cowboy Way


John Wayne is revered in SASS as the “Cowboy’s cowboy.” His movie characters represented some of the best traits of the Old West. He was quoted as saying “Every man’s got to have a code, a creed to live by, no matter what his job.”  In our job as cowboys of GHSS and SASS, we like to refer to the Code of the West™ developed by the Center for Cowboy Ethics®.
