World War II Army field kitchen

Yes, I'm still alive! My last post to 'Round the Chuckbox was over a month ago. I do intend on resuming posts soon. In the meantime, enjoy these videos of World War II era U.S. Army field stoves.

Video description: "Byron "Cooky" Vinyard explains the M1937 field range stove."

Video description: "It has been said that an army marches on their stomachs. For American units in World War II, the field kitchen was the only thing between the hated C-rations and hunger for GIs near the front lines. This functioning field kitchen was set up in the Allied encampment at the Collings Foundation's 2013 Battle for the Airfield re-enactment."
