WTF!!! We have the most people out here n this god forsaken country!! our old chow hall was a tent but they closed that down on DEC 31 because they built buildings for the chow hall's ..ok...BUT what they failed at!! and i mean Epic FAIL! was to secure the DLA(food that comes from the states) food line for any of the chow halls....so for now the three chow halls for American serve a international cuisine ...yuk!!...for u that dont know all the chow halls get there food from the nation's they serve....DFAC 0 is the North Line DFAC doesn't have a number cause its on the opposite side of the airfield & supports the CAB(Combat Aviation Brigade) supposed to serve American but doesn't do to the fact no DLA is coming in so they get their food and its Int Cuisine ......DFAC 1...is called the Niagara it serve's a mix of international cuisine and Canadian but is being change to a American DFAC once the DLA come...if and When.... DFAC 2.... is called the Cambridge... for all the Brits they get their food direct from the UK DFAC 3...is called the Luxembourg for the mix of Belgium, Dutch and French troops we have here.. DFAC 4....is call the FAR EAST....for all the TCN's that work on the post which is a shit load...mostly Americans and Canadians hire TCN's(third country nationals ) from the Philippines and India...they do have great stir Fry!! DFAC 5.....is called Independence hall...with a name like that u would think it would serve American ...and its supposed to but no because of the DLA issue its INT Cuisine...and it sucks...and DFAC 6 ...is called the Monti....which was last to be built and was supposed to replace the Niagara as the Int cuisine ...and gee whiz it does but it suck!! DID i mention that the food SUCKS out here!! and Thanks to that JACK ASS General (wont mention his name) they kicked out of country all the fast food joints for Americans....thank the lord the other nations started to sponsor some of the shops out here or we would have lost everything.. and since the unnamed General firing thing look like they will come back....but not fast.....lots of new empty buildings ....only time will tell.....UGGHHH maybe its a good time for a NO FOOD diet...not like ill miss it!!

    Yeah, there's definitely some good microwaveable stuff out nowadays. It's kinda shocking.

    And how can you be a military unit and not have MRE's handy? I mean, I understand the airforce not having any, because they all have those delicate palates and such...but seriously? Maybe I was just lucky to deploy as part of a support unit, but we had stacks of MRE's. Every truck had a box on it, and we all carried random bits from 2 or 3 of them on us on missions.

    Lol I'm truly baffled on how you can't get MREs.... why aren't they requried? We had to have at least 1 Case per stryker crewmember, just incase some shit goes down and we are in a fight for a couple of days

    When I was in Iraq we had a never ending supply of MRE. I got so tired of eating them towards the end of the deployment they had trouble handing them out since noone wanted them.
