The Greatest Beer Run Ever

John "Chickie" Donohue was a guy who “did things nobody else would think about doing.” In 1968, he traveled around the world and snuck into the thick of the Vietnam War to deliver beer to three friends from New York who were serving in the military. He hitchhiked to the front line without food, tent, or camouflage and surprised his friends with a 6-pack. Past Blue Ribbon heard the story, and assembled the principle characters to tell the story 47 years later. You can read more about it at BroBible. (via reddit)

Thanks for this post. I'm a Vietnam vet myself and the friendship and loyalty shown by these guys are also the best memories I have of my own time in-country.
