What do you eat in the military?

I was thinking about this in the shower this morning. I've never heard anyone talk about what you get fed in the army / navy / marines / what have you.

Run me through a typical breakfast, lunch, dinner. They still serve C-rats?!

It depends on what service you join and what your rank is. I had friends in the airforce eating lobster every day while we ate MRE's just outside the same building. If your a chief in the Navy I am told you will eat better than the captains. Way to many things to compare.

Its not a jeep if it dont have 4wd.

When I was in the Air Force the food was great.
Breakfast was eggs made to order including omelets. I remember all the meals being good. The pork schnitzel and oyster stew was great and I could put a hurting on that cold milk machine.

When I die, I want to go quietly in my sleep, like my Grandpa; not screaming in terror like his passengers.

MRE's mostly just in the field. They come in all different type's too. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, vomit. I remember getting a breakfast omelette MRE once that tasted like it was cooked in an old gym sock and sprinkled with dirt. Not the expensive soil stuff you have to buy mind you, just your run of the mill smoker's pit dirt.

When on base you have whatever you feel like from the mess. Anything from burger's to veal to meat loaf to chicken to rib's to...you get the idea.

SO FAR

Do they still serve those tray rations (T-Rats?) in the field? I was never big fan. I used to really like the brown MRE's, back when they had the dehydrated fruit in them.

When I was in the Army, we almost always had a DFAC that was essentially run by civilians and the food was always pretty good. We also had a company cook for when we were in the field for extended periods of times. The food was at best mediocre; everything was either those tray rations or canned. The lower enlisted also had to do KP for the field kitchens. I actually didn't mind the MRE's and it was nice when they eventually started installing warmers in our Bradleys.

I ate a lot of ***** when I was in the army. Nice, trimmed, college type *****.

I was stationed at Ft. Bragg, which is half way between UNC Greensboro and the 18(ish) colleges that are in Raleigh, NC.

As long as you didn't dine in Fayettenam you should be fine.
