Re: Commissary / Store
Ha! Now, that really takes me back to my days in basic training: Ft. Knox, Kentucky. They made their own syrup out of brown sugar, water and maybe even a little spit. But, they invariably burned the syrup. The fresh eggs were poured onto a griddle and flipped as soon as possible, with a big spatula. The egg whites were still clear and runny when they hit your plate. So, that was your choice: burned syrup or raw egg. Either one was enough to gag you. But if you get hungry enough, you will eat anything. And, those were army cooks. After basic training, we advanced to civilian cooks and the food only got worse. Come to think of it, I don't remember any visitors who thought that the food was delicious. I think that they must have fed the visitors in the "Visitors Only" mess hall. And, of course, the officers had their own, seperate, mess. So they didn't care what the enlisted men were eating. Now I remember why I hated officers. :-)
