Hi; Wow I just got hungry checking it out , in 1969 when I was in boot camp at MCRD- San Diego the food wasn’t that guality from, what I remember . Congratulations too all the food preparers and cooks and staff for an excellent job real professional.
In Sincerity and Truth;
Im a camp boss( catering manager) on camps such as these in the pics above.
Yes the guys do get very good food, far better than they would ever get at home.
The Americans are better fed than the British but the pictures you see above are for a special day or theme night or VIP’s arriving, most days the food is good but the decorations display is not done every day, the catering staff who work the hardest on any camp 7 days a week 12 to 14 hrs unthankful slave labour do not have the time to carve and decorate the food like that, to do that for a special occasion the staff would probably have stayed up all night.
The chefs and kitchen staff labourforce are without doubt the hardest and most skilled work force on camp, yet not one of the people eating or officers or soldiers even think about how hard we all work on there behalf and for usualy half the pay they get for twice or 3 times as much work.!!! and most of the time the men are ungrateful and spoilt brats, and unappreciated pigs including the officers.
I have run camps for 25yrs as manager camp boss on oil rigs everywhere all over the world including Bagad and Afganistan and Djibouti and many other places, all the men and women do not appreciate the efforts and slave labour hard manuel work or how skilled we are in catering, at the end of the day all they do is walk round holding a rifle and when they come out of being a soldier mug they are unemployable as in civvie street they can do nothing only security gaurd etc, so they need to appreciate us caterers more and show gratitude and respect us. Thats my opinion and ive experience to prove my facts.
anyway folks happy eating and if you see a chef or caterer say thank you, it means so much to us.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
