In Southeast Asia in 1967-1968, our AF ration cards allotted 6 bottles of wine per month. Unused by many GI's. Everyone in our hut (15 guys) agreed to buy their wine rats in "champagne" for October, November, and December. Mostly Andre, I think, but since it was all $1 a bottle, we bought whatever was available. We stored them everywhere and, come the 12 days of Christmas, we commenced drinking. There was much disagreement over when these 12 days began, but I believe I had some level of "champagne" hangover from around the 12th of December right into New Year's Day. I know we went through well over 200 bottles and a few guys didn't drink (honest!). Toted around like a can of beer, we enjoyed a bottle each many nights at the outdoor movie shown on the corrugated steel wall of a storage building. The garbage cans were placed right along the wall below the "screen" and had always been the target of long set-shots with beer cans......well, the lifers sure got tired of our "champagne" set-shots which made for a lot more excitement bouncing off the backboard/screen. But.....I digress. That
stuff was the worst "champagne" I ever had.
