Can Holiday: Supreme Sacrifice Day – March 18


Origin

Unknown.

How to Celebrate

The idea behind Supreme Sacrifice Day is to recognize those who put their lives in danger for others.  Some examples include firemen, police officers, and the military.  What you can do today is to thank these people for putting their lives on the line on a daily basis at any hour to help us, people they don't even know.

The Cans

To honor this day we are featuring three cans. First, we have the 1999 Boags beer can from Australia, celebrating 100 years of Tasmania Police service from 1899–1999.

Next we have the 1979 Clevengers Red beer can commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Pennsylvania Fire Department. The years on this can are 1879–1979, and it along with three other cans were given out at their 78th convention during August 23, 24, and 25 in 1979.

Third, we have another Boags beer can from Australia. This one is the 1996 Vietnam Veterans can from their 1996 convention held from August 14–18 in Launceston, Tasmania. This one has a nice silhouette of a ship on the bottom of the can underneath a red sky.
