August 14th, 2018 | FIVE DECADES OF THE GLOBE & LAUREL The Globe & Laurel restaurant, Marine Corps veteran Rick Spooner's historic pub, celebrates 50 years

Retired Marine Corps Maj. Rick Spooner, now 92, said he and his wife, Gloria, opened the Globe & Laurel restaurant 50 years ago out of a desire to serve those who put everything—even their lives—on the line for the love of their country.

“They deserved a place they could gather and enjoy the company of other like-minded individuals,” Spooner said. His posture was ramrod straight, and he sported a full head of white crewcut hair and a pencil-thin mustache. “I wanted to give them a comfortable place to relax, have a drink, a bite to eat—a home.”
