Something Fun: Every year on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, STIR commemorates its fallen soldiers on a day known as Captain Dan Turkey Day. Captain Dan (Ed’s note: not to be confused with Lt. Dan) returned from the war in Iraq to pursue a career in advertising,which he unfortunately ended after a mere 8 hours. In remembrance of this noble yet feeble casualty, STIR welcomes back each and every one of itsagency alumni for a lavish feast and daytime binge. Captain Dan has yet to participate.
