“Until 1776, America was a British colony. Accordingly, early American customs and traditions were British in origin; the military was no exception. British Army and Navy units deployed to the wilderness of America, brought with them the social customs and traditions of their services including the formal military dinner referred to as guest night. The purpose of which was to gather ‘for an evening of good food, drinking, fellowship, and honoring the feats of individuals and organizations.’” – Naval History and Heritage Command
