CC Women Marines Turn Wine into Toys

Monday, December 17th, 2012

You may recall our earlier blog post spotlighting the Central Coast Women Marines. We are now happy to post the following update sent to us by chapter president Soledad Kennedy:

“The Women Marines CA-11 made a basket for a fund-raising event using Jarhead Chard and Jarhead Red for the Marine Corps Ball, which was in support of Marine Corps League 1340’s 237th Birthday. We celebrated the birthday at the Radisson in Santa Maria on Friday November 9, 2012….As the 2012 campaign for the Toys for Tots is underway the Central Coast Women Marines CA-11 have been fundraising monies in support of the Toys for Tots program. We raffled off a basket using Jarhead Red and was able to provide funds for more needy children…Thank you for putting out a great product. Semper Fi.”

Thank you, Soledad, for your service to our country and our community!

Words to Remember

Monday, December 10th, 2012

We are always thrilled to hear from Jarhead Red fans, many of whom have interesting stories to share themselves.

On that note, we recently received the following note from Lisa Habermehl, whose husband Chuck has published an acclaimed book of military poetry. Chuck is a close quarters battle expert, and the author of Combat Proven Tactic: Small Unit Urban Warfare and other tactical-training materials

Wrote Lisa, “Just wanted to say we love your wine. We proudly display it on our bar rack and have given it to many friends as gifts. I only just discovered the wine club by going on your site – that’ll make a good Christmas gift! Thought you’d like to toast a glass of your JHR to a poem that appeared in my husband’s book, Depictions: Poems about Warriors and War, which recently won a gold medal from Military Writer’s Society of America last month at their annual conference. He is a jarhead too! Use it as you wish.”

Chuck’s book of poetry can be purchased on Amazon. Thank you Lisa and Chuck for sharing your kind note!
