Go eat at an Air Force chow hall. Makes the Navy chow seem weak by comparison. Of course Navy food is like caviar to a Marine

Or so it was, 20 years ago

Spent half my life eating in Army chow halls, it's how I keep my girly figure. Hickam AFB in Honolulu is the best I have eaten at though. We used to have this hot female cook at Schofield Barracks, made the best yeast rolls you ever ate. She ended up leaving to cook on some generals plane. Anyone remember Yakisoba? Spegetti noodles with ground beef, onions and green peppers marinated in soy sauce? Good stuff. Chili Mac in the field at Ft. Polk, LA.

Navy breakfast was the best! Real eggs, SOS, bacon etc! Of course, after you get a couple thousand miles away from home, it turns into hadji versions of the same stuff...

i only hated the noodles and beef crap and whatever theyd cook with mushrooms..

I was'nt able to serve time due to a broken femer, they would'nt take me as if anything ever broke again it would not heal. Something about growth plates being messed up... But, anytime I ran into the noodles and beef crap with mushrooms, its like hell on a plate. So, I must day "Ditto" to that one!

I decided to get into the scouts and am currently the Committee Chairman for our local troop (558) here in Mayville MI. Spent some time as an assistant scoutmaster, cub leader and educator as well within the BSA. Always worked close with the local servicemen/woman and the VFW and the American Legion. Lots of good friends and family of mine in all branches of the military. My dad retired from the Navy and is currently working out of the Coast Guard station in Tawas MI.

Thanks guys/gals for all your dedication and stay away from those boiled sausages! Sounds gross...

Fort Drum has more chow halls than you can shake a stick at, but they have not yet figured out how to cook anything without drenching it in grease. When you need extra paper towels to soak the grease off your burgers, there's something seriously wrong with the burgers. Thank God there's a food court in the PX and they now do fresh sandwiches at the commissary.

Hated yakisoba on ship. Seemed like the Navy would cook it just for us. I would go down to my Amtrack in the well deck and grab an M.R.E. instead.
As far as a like.......still thinking about that. It was more of a have too when I ate in a chow hall. Half the time we would not even taste it.

Only ate at field chow tents state side. Well and basic chow hall a long time back. Never have I ate at the base chow hall.

Best chow hall I ate at was at Spiecher in Iraq....good stuff.

With everyone saying the AF has awesome chow halls maybe I should go...but then I'd have to deal with AF people...

Midrats!

Anyone else ever worked night crew in Marine/Navy aviation? Nothing like having the exact same crappy breakfast foods for midrats...every night....for years. Literally. Years. My favorite were the weird "sausages" that you literally had to pierce and drain before attempting to eat them. Awesome.
The best chow halls are in Japan, though. Some of the locals working them do a great job!

Almost forgot...

The worst was the chicken and bone casserole served aboard ship one day. It was literally pulled apart chicken dumped in a pan, with whole bones sticking out everywhere. Delicious AND nutritious!

I'd say that the Chow Halls at depolyed locations seem to be better than the ones I have eaten at state side. My favorite are the fresh eggs made to order in the mornings, worst would have to be the "fish". I just don't trust it.
Anything after a while gets old however. Thats why the AAFES vendors are getting a good deal of my money now because I am tired of the chow hall.

Don't forget the not cooked all the way bloody chicken. Thats not gravy!! OR the whole prawns with heads and all that they keep reheating for a week.
How about the stickers on the food boxes on ship that say not for human consumption except for military and live stock. Sweet I could go on and on.

Depends. If you want a fried egg its real. Most of the time scrambled eggs are powdered.

Things haven't changed. I had to eat at a Navy galley for 6 months back in 2004. It was crap, all of it. And how anyone can ruin donuts is beyond me.


The Air Force DEFACS are the best.


Oh, and the Navy considers a plain white tee shirt an undergarment. So you cannot enter the galley if your wearing one with nothing over it. I found out the hard way.
