All Events | Online Events | VBC Happy Hour

It’s been two years since our last gameshow free-for-all on VBC Happy Hour, so we’ve decided to hold another Jeopardy game based on the military experience, culture. and history. We won’t have teams but will open up every question to the Zoom room. We’ll play two rounds with such categories as:

Air Force

Military Acronyms

Navy Ships

WWII Celebrities

Military Slang

and more!

Here are some sample clues:

“Camp Lemonnier is the only permanent US military base in Africa, located in this country whose funny-sounding name begins with a rare silent ‘D.’”

“Coast Guard ships have white hulls, except for these, which have red ones.”

“This was the standard issue sidearm for decades. It’s also the former name of the Houston Astros baseball team and a popular malt liquor.”

Join us for a fun and educational night of military trivia!

The Veterans Breakfast Club brings American history to life.

VBC programs provide veterans and members of the public the opportunity to listen and share their one-of-a-kind stories, while engaging with other local veterans.

Since 2008, VBC has served the local veteran community in the greater Pittsburgh area, hosting weekly local gatherings for veterans. In 2020, we transitioned to virtual programming and announced a national expansion of the organization, opening its programs to veterans around the country and world.

In addition to hosting two in-person events per month, VBC also holds a weekly program online, VBC Happy Hour, and publishes the quarterly VBC Magazine, the weekly VBC Bulletin e-newsletter, and a weekly podcast on military culture, The Scuttlebutt.
