WWII Field Kitchen Display
May 17th, 2019 9:00am
"No Army can fight on an empty stomach, and no soldier can fight unless he is fit." -Sir Winston Churchill
Come visit the museum May 17 - 27 and experience how the U.S. Quartermaster Corps fueled the fight. Cooky from the Tri-State Living History Association will have his fully operational WWII Field Kitchen set up at the Oveta Culp Hobby Education Center next to the Pacific Combat Zone.
You'll discover what it took to get hot meals to the front line to keep our men in fighting shape and how the field kitchen was also a morale booster for men fighting across the Pacific. This authentic display will immerse you in the stressful job of feeding up to 150 hungry mouths while being prepared to fight at any given moment. Catch the kitchen in action on May 25 & 26 when he feeds our WWII Pacific Combat Program volunteers during lunch. You'll see a WWII Field Kitchen serving a line of reenactors dressed in WWII uniforms. Just like they would have during the war. You can get tickets to the show here.
Be careful! Cooky might just put you on KP duty scrubbing pots and pans.
