Morale: A Bottle of Jarhead Red

Archives


January 22, 2006: A former marine decided that the marines needed a special wine for celebrating social occasions. So he started a vineyard and began producing "Jarhead Red", a $10 Cabernet Sauvignon. It's a red wine with an alcohol content on the high side of the scale. Or, as the marines like to say, "strong and red." It's a decent wine that has acquired a good reputation in the military, where it is much in demand, as anticipated, for celebrations. Part of the profits go to the Marine Corps Scholarship Fund, and two $10,000 scholarships have already been awarded to the children of marines. The wine is available from Firestone Vineyard, in California.
