WWII Field Kitchen Display
March 11th, 2017 09:00am-March 18th, 2017 05:00am
On March 11th we will open up phase two of our Pacific Combat Zone. As part of the opening our good friend Byron "Cooky" Vinyard from the Tri-State Living History Association will be displaying his WWII Field Kitchen March 11 - 18th. This exhibit is included in your museum ticket.
Learn the importance of a hot meal to our troops on the front lines, and how the members of the Quarter Master Corps served them.
Through his living history display Cooky brings to life the responsibility, hard work, and dangers of being a WWII cook in the Quarter Master Corps. Cooking only with what they had in WWII, you won't find any modern kitchen gadgets in this kitchen.
Cooking recipes straight out of a WWII issued cook book, you might get lucky on your visit to the kitchen to catch Cooky as he finishes up treats.
The Field Kitchen display will be set up between the TBM and PT Boat building at the Pacific Combat Zone. Cooky and his team will be there to answer questions and talk about the operation of a WWII Field Kitchen.
