Marines & Sailors Drank All the Beer in an Icelandic Town; Here's What Happened
It's no surprise that Marines and sailors get into a bit of trouble and drink a lot during down time.
The 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit's stop in Iceland's capitol last October was no exception.
After four days of landing in the capitol city, all of the bars ran out of beer. One of Iceland's local breweries answered the beer distress call and began working overtime to distribute emergency beer shipments to the city.
Having that said, the Marines were on their best behavior.
Only one lance corporal was disciplined for bad behavior. He was charged with excessive drinking and being wrongfully drunk and disorderly conduct.
The Marine was de-ranked to private first class, placed on a 60 day restriction, and lost half months pay for two months. What a dumb ass.
Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!
