Additional Details

Description: Quarters A exemplifies the best of southern living. While the Charleston Naval Base has grown and changed complexion over the years, Quarters A, with its four tall white columns, towering oaks, and sweeping views of the Cooper River and marshlands beyond, has retained the graciousness and charm that is so much a part of the Lowcountry. 

"Dining-in" is derived from a Viking tradition of celebrating great battles and heroic feats at a formal banquet. 

The military adopted this tradition when the officers' mess was established, and it became known as "dining-in."  

Over 25 years in the making, this book weds Norwegian heritage to an extended family of Navy wives whose friendship, support, and networking helped create Dining in Quarters A.
