Food and Commissary
JM: How many meals did you get per day?
Jeremy: 3 were offered but if I remember, they only required breakfast because they would do the count. Food wasn't bad, considering they had to cook for 3000 guys.
JM: How would you rate the food? Please give details of why.
Andrew: Probably a 4.
Jeremy: 6 out of 10. It was okay. Meat was rationed, but starches were all you could pile on your tray.
JM: Did you have any favorite/least favorite meals?
Andrew: Keep in mind that often times any type of food that invovles ham or pork would be tainted by the Muslims prepariing it. They would spit in it because they think if you're eating pork you're being filthy and that's what you deserve.
Jeremy: Breakfast was pretty hard to screw up, so that was best. They had half chickens or a slice of beef on alternate Sundays, which was cool.
JM: Were there any other snacks offered outside of meals? What was commissary like and how expensive was it?
Andrew: Commissary was once a week if you had money in the account.
Jeremy: Only through commissary. That was extensive, but only if you had a means of income.
