    recommend

    I recommend this book to those of us who has served in the military and would fully understand where Victoria Hudson is coming from. As a Veteran, I have been there and dealt with the 'Chow' we have. I did find a couple of parts highly entertaining. It is an easy read.

    Weird

    It talked about different food she'd ate in the military. Which clearly no one joins up expecting the food to be good. Writing style is ok but she jumps around and talks about breaking the rules. Overall its a quick free read.

    The author brings back memories of my days of Army life. I don't think that I ever met a soldier who did not have their own personal complaints of miitary food and I am no exception. I can truly identify with the author.

    Isolated incidents jumping back and forth in time

    Not exactly what I thought this was, it was hard to make sense of it at all. Meals definately would not be considered much more than edible by anyone not in the military, especially not "the best meal of all", which left me feeling rather sick.

    It was a good read and interesting to see how a girl looks at military food.
