                  Honoring Local Iwo Jima Veterans

                  Wednesday, March 25th, 2015

                  Iwo_Jima_VetsHistory recently came alive?at?the 4th annual Pierre Claeyssens Veterans Foundation luncheon and symposium in Santa Barbara, featuring four veterans who survived one of the most significant battles of the Pacific during World War II: Iwo Jima.

                  The luncheon honored Cpl. Benedict E. Bellefeuille, Cpl. Joseph Hale and Lt. Col. Bob Beckham, all Marines, and Pharmacist’s Mate Kenneth E. Morehouse of the Navy—all of whom reside on the Central Coast. The program included presentations about these four veterans by other veterans, along with historical information about the battles as well as film clips and music.

                  Following a short version of the “Sands of Iwo Jima” film, individual awards were presented. Each of the honorees was presented with a commemorative plaque and a bottle of special label Jarhead Red wine. Pictured below is Mr. Morehouse signing bottles of Jarhead Red prior to the event.

                  We salute the honorees and all of the veterans who made this event happen, and we were honored to have Jarhead Red play a small role along the way.?Click here to read a full recap of the event. And thanks to Maureen “Mo” McFadden, legendary Santa Barbara P.R. practitioner, for sending?information and photos.

                  We were excited to play an active role in the Patriots at Pebble event last weekend in Pebble Beach, California, which raised more than $700,000 for the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation.

                  The weekend included a Marine Appreciation Day at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey on Saturday, as well as the Eagle, Globe & Anchor Awards Dinner on Sunday at the Inn at Spanish Bay. Golf tournaments were also held on Sunday at Spanish Bay and Monday at Pebble Beach Golf Links.

                  Jarhead Wine Company was proud to donate both Jarhead Red and Jarhead Chardonnay to the awards dinner and auction. We were represented at Patriots at Pebble by David Macon, VP of sales and marketing at our affiliated Firestone Walker Brewing Company, along with Kevin Orona, the brewery’s national accounts manager.

                  According to David, our wines were a hit at the auction. “The organizer told me that a wine named Jarhead Red is not a tough sell to old Marines,” he said.

                  David and Kevin also hit the links along with team members Dean Biersch of Gordon Biersch Brewing Company and HopMonk Tavern, and Jeff Jordano, president of Pacific Beverage Company.

                  Said David, “It was a tremendous honor to participate in the company of so many Marine Corps veterans and active duty service men and women. It’s impressive to see the Marine Corps not only taking care of its own, but also working so hard to provide scholarships for children of wounded and fallen Marines.”
