I was in the army of the 50s, corn flakes were dated from sometime in ww2, boiled eggs flowed from the egg when you cracked the shell ( that included the white as well as the yoke), they made this pink I don't know what substance, that was supposedly meat, never ate it so usually left the mess hall hungrier than when I went in. If we had been fed as well as those prisoners, we would have thought we died and went to heaven. Real honest to God meatballs, mashed, not boiled lumps of potatoes. If my memory serves me right, I don't think I saw a single pork chop, steak wasn't even a dream. I volunteered to serve my country, turns out, I would have been treated better if I had gone to prison.
