A Salute to the Central Coast Women Marines

July 31st, 2012

We were excited to receive a note this week from Soledad Kennedy of the Central Coast Chapter of the Women Marines Association, who shared that a gift basket featuring Jarhead Red was big hit at a recent fundraising event.

Soledad (pictured here in uniform) also said that Jarhead Red will be included in a gift basket at the Santa Maria Marine Birthday Ball at the Radisson Hotel in Santa Maria on November 9. We are honored to have our wine included in their events!

Soledad, who is president of the chapter, is currently in the IRR standby to retire Marine and has stepped up to continue the organization’s quest “to keep the Women Marines tradition strong.”

She says, “Due to women from World War II, Korea and Vietnam passing away, our membership is small. We have been recruiting in hopes to find more of us on the Central Coast.”

On that note, please spread the word if you know anyone who fits the bill! For more information, including a history of the organization, you can visit their chapter web site at
