Memoir chronicles the 1967 'greatest beer run ever' to Vietnam

For the full story, click here.

We revisit host Robin Young’s November 2020 conversation with John “Chickie” Donohue about “The Greatest Beer Run Ever: A Memoir of Friendship, Loyalty and War,” which he wrote with J.T. Molloy. The book tells the story of a trip Donohue made to Vietnam in November 1967 to deliver beer to his buddies from their New York City neighborhood.

“The Greatest Beer Run Ever” has been made into a movie that will premiere on Apple TV+ this fall.
