Mustache March

|
Keeping with the military theme I thought I would share with you the glorious, eye catching spectacle I’ve had the pleasure of enjoying over the past week…
Husband’s moustache.
I’ll spare him from typing out the colorful comments that come to my mind, and calling him Chester Chester behind his back…
BUT ONLY because it’s tradition. 
What is Mustache March you ask?
Let’s ask Wikipedia
“Mustache March is annual event occurring in the month of March, where young men in the United States grow mustaches for amusement and to raise money for charity. The idea stems from an early Air Force tradition in which members of the U.S. Air Force would grow mustaches in good-natured protest against facial hair regulations during the month of March[1]. It is common in Santa Barbara, California. The act of growing a mustache as a gesture of defiance against dogmatic leadership is attributed to U.S. Air Force triple-ace Robin Olds who grew an extravagantly waxed handlebar mustache which did not comply with U.S. Air Force regulations.”


Thank God it only lasts a month.
