Feeding the crew on the USS Constitution

We've come a long way in 199 years ...

YouTube description: USS Constitution spent much of 1812 at sea on extended cruises to protect the nation's maritime interests. A well-fed crew was essential to the victories she won during the War of 1812. Her modern crew of 70 US Navy sailors also eat well, thought the means of food storage and preparation have changed... much for the better!

This video offers a quick comparison of how the "cook" of 1812 and the "Culinary Specialist" of today feed the ship's company to ensure they are ready and able to meet the duties of the day.
