Kevin, welcome to The Wild Geese. I'm delighted to have a family member join our growing extended Irish family here, particularly one with wartime service in the legendary "Fighting 69th." Do join us over at Blue, Gray and Green Group, as well, where we explore the Irish experience during America's Civil War. I know this to be an interest of yours, since your school paper on Antietam many moons ago.
Not yet a connoisseur, but that's the goal! Santa must have been on the same page this year as I received a bottle of Red Breast as well! My next objective is to secure a bottle of The Wild Geese Soldiers and Heroes Irish Whiskey!
Kevin, Welcome to the Wild Geese. If the Garden City Library is convenient for you, come to one of our meetings. Our February 12 meeting is listed in Events on thewildgeese.com. Also check us out at irish-society.org. Say hello and be rewarded with a welcoming hug. Stay well. John Walsh
