Taped a documentary on the Battle of Tarawa one night-during the fighting a couple of Marines found some bottles of Japanese Kirin beer, and one was actually caught on film taking a swig of the stuff by a combat cameraman, as bullets whizzed by them. Never a bad time for a beer!

P.S.- the Marine in question survived the war, so I guess the beer hadn't been poisoned....
