Happy Hour / Meet and Greet

Wine Tasting Contest - MARINES BEAT ARMY!!

At The O Club of the Day 

Army Versus Marines

Face Off

Kind of a pre Army Navy Game

On Friday the 11th of December

Colonel Troy Scott USA and Colonel Craig Hullinger USMC

were in a grudge match.  Each guy thought he was a wine and beer connesewer. They each selected a wine available for tasting - bottles in a brown paper bag and which bottle is Army and which is Marine were unknown to participants until after the tasting and voting. Participants vote thus determining which branch of the service is the best.

Marines Won !!!!  The vote was strongly in favor of the Marine Wine (1 Vote).  But Troy took  it like a man when he was awarded the bird for his performance.  (Truth - the Marine could not tell the difference in taste and gave the honor? of selecting the wine to the Army.)

The Army got air support from the Air Force, and the Marine Corps is relied on support from the Navy and Coast Guard.

The wine was be cheap in keeping with the ground pounder rough and tough nature of the two services - hey, we are not high rolling zoomies or swabbies or coasties here.
