All the time that I spent in the Army during WW2, I never had a complaint about the food. America had the best fed Army in the world. Even in combat we were fed decent food. C Rations consisted of 12 oz Olive Drab colored cans of, Corned beef hash, Hot Dog slices and beans, Stew and biscuits, powdered coffee, four Cigarettes. And Gum. Later on we started to get, Spaghetti and meat balls, and potted meat. K Rations were a Pack of waxed cardboard box in which there was a small block of cheese,and crackers. more potted meat, chocolate bar, gum and cigarettes , powdered lemonade powder .. No one complained. Field kitchens gave us fresh coffee, powdered eggs, spam, and dehydrated vegetables, fresh white bread ans sometime a piece of cake. To heat our C rations we were issued a can of Sterno. It looked like melted wax???? But It did the job.
