    The food was disgusting like those "Italian beans" on my ship. Tobasco ( no other hot sauce available in those days) was required on everything. Loading on Grade D meat during supply replenishment didn't help, to the point I was sneaking the Marine's MREs into the Bosn's locker( my apologies to the marines, I respect and trust you devil dogs more than I would ever trust a sailor) or spending most of my paycheck on microwaved food from the ship's store. First ship was an amphib similiar to this. Circa 2000-2006. And don't get me started on that dumb FSA duty. I would say careful, because sometimes they save the best food for "Grip N Grins" either with civilians visiting or Admirals.

          I served in the U.S. Air Force for five years, straight out of high school. Most of the dining halls on the bases where I served had surprisingly good chow. But the very best meals could nearly always be found in the dining room at the base hospital. My buddies and I would head over there on the weekends for dinner, and the food was comparable to that of a decent restaurant.

                        Yeah the food only looks that good because they had the cameras there, we had raw chicken served to us, ribs cooked for so long the bones were as soft as the meat, cold noodles, spoiled rock hard bread, etc. on a 9 month deployment Vienna sausages and cheese wiz is usually better then what the cooks make for the enlisted crew

                                                    I really enjoyed watching this video. Brings back the old days. I was on the U.S.S Enterprise CVAN 65 back in 1974. I was a Messman specialist, meaning the same as these guys in the video. Looking back I really hated going out to sea for months and months at a time wile working 12 hrs. on and 12 hrs. off 7 days a week till we hit port but now looking back I kind of miss it. She was a great ship and had a great crew. I hear she is going to be dismantled. Would have preferred she would have become a museum. R.I.P. Enterprise
