When it was available, beer was a welcome treat for troops in warm climates. Recreation islands, such as MogMog in the Ulithis even featured coconut grove beer gardens and officer’s taverns to help troops relax and have a cold one. Here are a few beer-related items from our collections.
And lastly, a pretty unique item to save for 75 years, this can of Hudepol Pure Lager with the beer still in the can. It was saved by Staff Sgt. Robert Schumar who served with the 182nd Infantry Regiment.
