Chow Line

My son asked me what people in the military eat. I told him that it probably depended on whether the squad or whatever was on the move and/or in an unsafe place, vs in a stable position in a safe location. Depending on the situation, they might eat basically canned food (formerly K Rations and the like, now MREs), or they might have a regular camp kitchen set up.

Then something waved to me from my memory. "My father told me that he liked the food in the Navy."

My son's reply: "I like the food in prison. [Pause.] You can just drop me off near San Quentin. My parole agent will take it from there."
