Amazing Inwood Man Snuck Into Vietnam During the War to Bring Beer to His Friends

Pabst Blue Ribbon recently created this video retelling the amazing story of how Inwood's John "Chickie" Donohue snuck a few cases of PBR into Vietnam during the war in 1968 to bring beer to his buddies.

At a time when the Vietnam War was at its height, one man, John "Chickie" Donohue, snuck back into the war zone to find his 3 closest friends and buy them a beer. Crazy or caring, Chickie gave his friends more than beer, he gave them hope. Hope that helped each one safely return home when the war was over. Now, 47 years later, the group is reunited to relive the greatest beer run ever.
