Hey, Napoleon said an army travels on its stomach. And if you want your men to do their best, it's only logical to give them batter than C-rats. Nice ficlet.

LOL, nice thought. However, speaking from experience. Many who have not had the "pleasure" of living off C's for months at a time don't really think of them as so bad. I can see the sgt. or one of the other marines having this thought more than the officer. EX. my ex didn't think they were that bad. Of course, she never had to eat them cold, out of the can. (and I mean frozen, 4 ft of snow). Also, minor point, when would a zoomie ever actually eat C's? That's the "civilized" service. They don't live like the rest of us grunts. When they don't have finger bowls, they get hardship duty pay. (G)

Probably because he didn't think of it, but wise is the man who keeps his troops well fed.

Besides, such mundane things tend to be ignored in action novels.
