My last deployment was to the UAE... in 13'.. It was kind of sad, in the DFAC, aka Dining Facility, aka Chow Hall... there was a whole section dedicated to candy bars, m+m's, etc... not to mention the 27 metric tons of candy sent to the base over the holidays...

Guilty here too. Back in 94 in the Bosnia war, the Canadians ate like kings every meal. So the word got out that about our food . So every evening there were new vehicals from differnt countries or convoys parked in the compound and always in time for dinner.. I bet they planned their trips because there was to be no travel at night any where in the conflict zones, so they must stay at the closest U.N installation.
Sad but true, most guys ate better in a war than they did at home.
Some U.N Installations I ate at, British- everything cooked in grease, French-water down soup and bread, Pakistanian- well I ate my own MRE cold instead of their food. etc.

One day a Marine General, an Army General and a Navy Admiral are shooting the shit at the bar. They get to discussing who's soldiers have the biggest balls. So they set out to find out. They set a date to meet on the aircraft carrier to find out.

Finally the day arrived. They are all standing on the deck and the Army General steps up and says "ima go first." He yells over to one of his men...."Green Beret!!! I want you to pull out your KBar and stab yourself in the chest." The Green Beret obeys. The General turns to the other two and says..."now that takes balls."

The Marine General says, "ima put a stop to this right now." He yells to one of his men..."Marine Raider!!!! I want you to pull the pin on your grenade and dive on it". The Raider obeys. The General turns to the other two and says...."now that takes balls."

The Navy Admiral says, "these are fine, fine soldiers, but this is all mine." He points up to a Navy Seal, high up in the antenna array 100' off the deck. He yells to his man. "Navy Seal!!! I want you to jump from your spot, land here on the deck and pop tall." The Navy Seal yells down, "F You, Sir." The Admiral turns to the other two and says...."now that takes balls."

Sounds more like a floating mini mall than a Carrier. :rolleyes:
If I remember correctly there was over 3000 personal on board when we went to sea. It was like a floating city. The only bad part was racial tensions were high. People fighting constantly even end up with a few lost a sea.

Sad indeed. We had some problems on our base as well (1965 and 1966). While on duty no problems, after hours brought out some old prejudices. :(

If I remember. Just after the wall came down in 1990 , I ate at a few different USA installations in Germany and thought it was cool that all food served in the mess had a charts on them with calories, and fat content. I thought is was to help soldiers lose weight. I know that the US forces slashed strenth in europe when the wall came down.
So, was the calorie charts for that era or is it still in use.

You are correct about the tension. When I was in Thiland and there was combat going on things were pretty cool. Get back CONUS and things went to shit. I was a Hot Rodder and many of the brothers were Hot Rodders so I stayed out of the big trouble but still had a couple of throw downs out in the barracks hall a couple of nights this little fat white boy was taking shot from no one. That's just the facts... Don't like it and don't like the fact that I have to own it...
