Armed Cook

Not all cooks work in peaceful environments. Some -- especially military cooks deployed to a combat zone -- must bring multiple skills to the table. Blog no. 13 brings news of one armed Navy cook deployed to Afganistan.

MAYMANEH, Afghanistan (Oct. 30, 2007) Culinary Specialist 2nd Class Timothy Wright, assigned to the Combined Security Transition Command-Afghanistan, cuts up pomegranates to put out as a snack. In addition to his duties as a cook, Wright is also responsible to order and store all supplies; and for all maintenance, hygiene and upgrades to the galley.

MAYMANEH, Afghanistan (Oct. 30, 2007) Culinary Specialist 2nd Wright teaches Nasim, the Afghan cook, how to make an apple dessert. Wright is often required to prepare large meals for groups of soldiers who come through the Forward Operating Base on short notice.
