Thanks, Jeff, . . .

Great pics, . . . my favorite is the sniper lady, . . . that one has been around for a while, . . . but I'd still like to buy her a steak dinner and just say Thank You, . . .

May God bless,

Thanks from JEFFJP_N_JJ

Nice Jeff! I like the last one. When I told my father-in-law that I had been stationed in Germany, he told me the last time he saw it, it looked like a plow had pulled through it from one end to another. -Lloyd

The Air Force chow hall photo was great.

When I was in technical school at Chanute AFB in Rantoul, IL, dinner every Sunday actually was either steak, lobster tail, or cornish game hens. Or any combination you cared to stuff down your gullet. Gained some weight there.

Having been a Marine that has visited Air Force bases; it's all true!

Thanks for the laugh.

My experiences with the "Aerospace Dining Facility" (AKA "The scarf & Barf or "The choke & Puke") haven't exactly matched the stereotype when compared to an Army chow hall.

For example, the only time I saw something REALLY good on an Air Force base was when a general was expected to go through and do their little tours of the base. At my first assignment (CONUS), when we had a two star rolling through, I got to eat Prime rib. Whoo hoo. I will admit that CONUS, the eggs to order for breakfast in the morning can't be beat. I still miss that. I'll take an omelet with everything please!

My next assignment in korea. I can tell you what I ate whenever I was at my homestation for lunch and dinner - every day. CHICKEN. Baked chicken, herb chicken, chicken catchatory, chicken ala king, etc etc. Whenever I went to an army chow hall? I ate steak and scallops, or beef boogogi (spelling) cooked up by some local chef, or something else that blew my mind. It blew my preconceptions out the window. My first trip to an army chow hall, I expected something on par with an Omelet w/ hamslice MRE. What I had was quite the opposite. I did alot of TDY's, and spent time in numerous army chow halls while in the "land of the not quite right." The meals were almost always better. Better medical too.
