When I was in Germany, we were lucky in that the mess halls and the O- 
club had local German cooks, who would throw out the "planned menus"  
the Army commissary service suggested and do whatever they pleased!   
It was WONderful.  1st Support Brigade had the best chow hall in  
Europe, I think.

(remembering spiessbraten in the messhall)
