Leatherneck Spotlights Jarhead Red

May 31st, 2012

A big “thank you” to writer Ed Vasgerdsian and publisher/editor Walt Ford of Leatherneck Magazine for their fine feature on Jarhead Wine Company in the latest issue.

The three-page spread delves into the origins of Jarhead Red as a celebratory Marine Corps Birthday Ball bottling conceived by Adam Firestone in 1999 along with Doug Hamlin, a board member of the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation. It also shares Adam’s personal experience as a captain in the Marine Corps, and his inspiration to continue making Jarhead Red in support of the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation.

As Vasgerdsian writes,”The foundation provides scholarships for post-high school education to deserving sons and daughters of Marines and Navy corpsmen, particularly those who have had a parent killed or wounded in action.”
