The Defender’s Inn on the Soldiers Home DC campus was a lively place Tuesday, Aug. 5 as veterans and Friends of the Soldiers Home got together for the monthly Saloon Night. The entertainment this time around was a trivia competition. Questions ranged from what is the Diamond State (Delaware) to what is the only medal with the words `of valour’ on it (Victora Cross) and who won the most Academy Awards (Walt Disney). In the end, team Mensa was tied with the Old somethings for the lead. That brought an overtime question on how many voting members are there in the U.S. House excluding delegates. The Old somethings were first to answer 435 and hence were the victors! Everyone wins, however, when the community and veterans get together.
