Yes I was in the military (pre-MRE's and pre-diabetes)... this was in the 
late 1960's. Overseas?? Yup!! 18 months at Clark Field, Philippines (now 
under a few feet of ash from Mt. Pinatubo) and 12 months in Khorat, central 
Thailand. That was as much overseas as I wanted to get back then. 
Fortunately I didn't need to eat rations... I ate at the officers club and 
flew a desk the whole time.
