    I'm wondering if they still serve S.O.S. in the modern army mess halls. That's creamed chipped beef on toast. Guys complained about G.I. food, but I loved that stuff.

    Must confess have loved S.O.S my whole life, in the Army and afterward. Stoeffer's Frozen Foods makes a reasonable facsimile. I prefer it on sour dough toast.

      That's why it was known as Fort Swill, Oklahoma

        I liked it too. The first time I ate lamb chops they were fixed so good I thought I was eating pork tenderloin. The Air Force served lamb chops a lot while in the States and I loved them. A lot of the guys said they didn't like them but I think it was just the thought of them. I still like good lamb chops. I ate a whole lot worse in Korea and Vietnam.

              Loved the stuff and learned early on not to insult the Mess Sergeant by calling it gravy. I still make my version at home every once in a while at my wife's request would you believe!

                I always enjoyed eating it. My wife never had it before she meet me, I make it for her and she loved it.

                  I liked the stuff. It was definitely better
                  than some of the "delicacies". Especially in
                  Nam. Never knew the make or model over there.
                  But, I survived. :-) BC

                      They still serve it, but the biscuits that they put it over could also be used as a hockey puck.

                          I was house-sitting a couple of weeks ago with a former staff-sergeant just out of the Army, and one day I was looking for something to cook for lunch and I asked him if he ever had SOS. He said he had no idea what SOS was, so I cooked him a plate and he took one bite and said that it was amazing. So my guess is it is no longer fed to the troops, but it is still an amazing meal.

                              Treestand, SOS= S**t on a Shingle or Same Old S**t. SOS is just a way of saying that and won't get you wamped by your mama or wife if you say it in public.

                                Dream on boys. We've all seen an actual cold-blooded murder take place on TV, and the kneeling cop will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law....

                                Body cam footage shows Floyd wasn't murdered. The cop kneeling on his neck might have been negligent, but his actions did not kill Floyd.
