I'll always remember our gourmet meals like duck, we'd duck in and duck right out. They ought to put the fat bodies on C-rats for a year, they'll lose a lot of weight.

Marines aren't chubby because of the chow in MREs or the chowhall, it's because of all the fast food they eat and alcohol they drink in garrison.

Like Rich said. Nobody is obligated to eat in their messhalls. They're issued a meal card so they can eat their if they wish. Messhalls can have all the healthy foods in them they want, that does not mean Marines will eat any of it. Dominos delivery to the barracks is still just a phone call away, and the Burger King by the main exchange is just a short drive without leaving base. It's a nice thought, and healthier options are way past due, but for those Marines avoiding their messhall in favor of fast food, doesn't mean a whole lot.
