437th Operations Group Commander Col. Robert Holba gets a little help quenching his thirst while drinking from the grog bowl with his wife Jane during the combat dining out on Joint Base Charleston, S.C., Sept. 17, 2010. The grog bowls were porcelain toilets converted into punch bowls. Typically, there are two grog bowls containing mysterious concoctions - one with spirits, the other not. Throughout the evening, some members are encouraged to have a drink from the bowl whenever an infraction to protocol is made, all in good fun. The tradition of combat dining outs provide service members a unique, off-duty opportunity to unwind and enjoy an evening with their spouses and friends. The dining out has rules, etiquette and procedures, with a special emphasis on Airmen having fun. (U.S. Air Force photo/James M. Bowman)(Released)
