World War II Service Food Menus and Base Brochures

Sharing is caring!

Service Food Menus

Oftentimes different units would create service menus for special occasions such as Christmas, Thanksgiving or New Years. These are some examples

67th Signal Battalion Company A Victory Party

A service menu for the Division School No 2, New Area at Camp Bowie Texas, Oct 17th, 1944. It’s hard to find much information about the unit, but according to the US Army Lineage, it was in Europe and presumably came home before being transferred to the Pacific. I guess that this Victory Party is the result of them coming home from Europe.
