Cooking Breakfast for 1,500 on a US Navy Ship

  • Cooking Breakfast for 1,500 on a US Navy Ship


    Have you ever wondered what it takes to make breakfast for a boat full of US Sailors and Marines? We climbed aboard the USS Arlington to see how Navy and Marine culinary specialists get the job done. Turns out, it takes thousands of eggs, endless strips of bacon, and (ahem) boatloads of hash browns.

  • What its like to be a chef onboard an aircraft carrier


    Business Insider UK was allowed aboard the HMS Queen Elizabeth, the Royal Navy's most powerful warship.

    We were given a tour around one of the galleys (kitchen) of the ship, where head chef - Petty Officer Dean Allen explained to us the operations of the kitchen. 

    He said: The specialist thing about this galley compared to a normal kitchen in the civilian world is that obviously this moves a lot. So everything has to be secured for sea, everything needs to be locked away if it’s not being used.

    When we’re fully embarked with aircraft we’re gonna be feeding almost 2,000, so that in itself is gonna be a big challenge at sea, day in, day out, 2,000 mouths to feed.

    The team had also made lunch for Queen Elizabeth II, who recently visited to officially commision the ship into the Royal Navy.

  • Food aboard Constitution, 1812 vs Today


    USS Constitution spent much of 1812 at sea on extended cruises to protect the nation's maritime interests. A well-fed crew was essential to the victories she won during the War of 1812. Her modern crew of 70 US Navy sailors also eat well, thought the means of food storage and preparation have changed... much for the better!

    This video offers a quick comparison of how the cook of 1812 and the Culinary Specialist of today feed the ship's company to ensure they are ready and able to meet the duties of the day.

  • Feeding the 5,000 aboard the USS Carl Vinson carrier.


    (22 Oct 2001) +++SOUND AS INCOMING+++

    2. Food in the freezer
    3. Various of food taken from freezer to kitchen
    4. Various of food preparation
    5. Prepared food taken to mess hall
    6. SOUNDBITE: (English) Moises, mess specialist chef
    Well, 5-thousand sailors on board. I would say we are very, very happy if we can have some 99 percent (of the) crew that's smiling every time we go past through the serving line. Other than that we have one or two there that have small issues about the food.
    7. Various of serving line
    8. SOUNDBITE (English) Vox pop, Sailor
    It is not the greatest but it is not the worst either.
    9. SOUNDBITE (English) Vox pop, Sailor
    Its all right. They do the best they can. For feeding 5,000 people they do what they have to do. Yeh, mess is all right.
    10. Various of people eating in the mess


    It's always said that an army marches on its stomach and, of course, that's also how the navy sails.

    On the huge aircraft carrier the U-S-S Carl Vinson, feeding 5-thousand sailors is a daily challenge.

    The challenge for the catering crew is to provide plenty of quantity and variety, even if the ship is at sea for weeks on end.

    The USS Carl Vinson, which is launching bombing raids on Afghanistan from the northern Arabian Sea, has seven galleys ranging from the exclusive admiral's mess to the two huge eating areas for the enlisted men and women.

    You name it, they've probably got it: from machines dispensing root beer and pink lemonade all the way to an expensive cappuccino maker.

    The 140 cooks on board will fry up a hamburger, veggie burger or a grilled cheese sandwich.

    Then there are taco bars, salad bars, a pasta bar, bagels, and hot dogs.

    Many items are available round the clock.

    The crew gets four meals a day: breakfast, lunch, dinner and a late-night offering called mid rats.

    That's short for 'midnight rations' and has nothing to do with the ingredients.

    The immense freezer can hold 120 truckloads of food.

    Its supplies include boxes of lobster tail and steak for a special dinner to celebrate the Navy's birthday, 226 years ago.

    The specialist mess chef, Moises, whose full name cannot be used under military ground rules, says all but a few seem happy with the results.

  • USS Michael Monsoor Commissioning Ceremony Honors Legacy of Navy SEAL


    The Navy’s newest Zumwalt-class destroyer, USS Michael Monsoor (DDG 1001), was commissioned Jan. 26 at Naval Air Station North Island, California.

    The second ship in the Zumwalt-class of destroyers, DDG-1001 is named in honor of Medal of Honor recipient Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class (SEAL) Michael A. Monsoor, who was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for his heroic actions in Ramadi, Iraq, Sept. 29, 2006.

    On Sept. 29, 2006, in Ramadi, Iraq, Monsoor was part of a sniper overwatch security position with two other SEALs and several Iraqi Army soldiers when an insurgent closed in and threw a fragmentation grenade into the position. The grenade hit Monsoor in the chest before falling to the ground. Positioned next to the single exit, Monsoor was the only one who could have escaped harm. Instead he dropped onto the grenade, smothering it to protect his teammates. The grenade detonated as he came down on top of it, inflicting a mortal wound. Monsoor’s actions saved the lives of his two teammates and the accompanying Iraqi soldiers. His Medal of Honor citation reads, “by his undaunted courage, fighting spirit and unwavering devotion to duty in the face of certain death, Petty Officer Monsoor gallantly gave his life for his country, thereby reflecting great credit upon himself and upholding the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service.”

    The future USS Michael Monsoor includes new technologies and will serve as a multi-mission platform capable of operating as an integral part of naval, joint or combined maritime forces. The Zumwalt-class fields a considerably larger flight deck and has capacity for two MH-60R and three VTUAVs to execute a wider array of surface, aviation, and undersea missions that deliver more manpower, firepower, and computing power to the fight. The future USS Michael Monsoor’s Vertical Launch System (VLS) features cells physically larger than similar cells on today’s ships, allowing this class to fire larger and more advanced land and anti-ship missiles in the future.

    I got too close to a nuclear submarine while fishing for Flounder! As I was approaching, I got stopped by the U.S. Navy and was told to stay 1000 yards away from any US military ships. Puget Sound fishing at it's finest! Lesson learned - don't get pulled over by the military, intercepted by the navy, or boarded by the navy! Reminded me a lot of the coast guard boards submarine video... Besides being stopped by the Navy patrol boat, I get to show you how to catch flounder in the Puget Sound, and did a fun catch and cook with a creative flounder recipe. While I got stopped by the feds, it was an awesome day out fishing the Puget Sound.

    3. Wide of officials clapping, pan to Bush standing in line for breakfast
    4. Bush pouring syrup over pancakes
    5. Bush making his way to his table, shaking hands with troops at the table before sitting down for breakfast
    US President George W. Bush had a breakfast of bacon and pancakes on Sunday with troops from the US Navy's 5th Fleet in Bahrain's capital Manama before boarding Air Force One bound for the United Arab Emirates.
    He was expected to give a speech in Abu Dhabi about regional security and his push for democratic reform in the Mideast.
    On Saturday in Kuwait, Bush said he was open to the possibility of slowing or stopping plans to bring more US troops home from Iraq, defying domestic demands to speed the withdrawals.
    Updated on war developments, Bush said the US presence in Iraq will outlast his presidency.
    He said any decision about troops levels needs to be based upon success.
    He said there was no discussion about specific numbers when he was briefed by General David Petraeus, the top US commander in Iraq, and Ryan Crocker, the US ambassador to Baghdad.
    The war, now in its fifth year, was a dominant theme during Bush's stops in Kuwait and Bahrain, two Persian Gulf nations crucial to US military efforts in the region.
    Kuwait, invaded by Saddam and liberated by a US-led war in 1991, is a major military staging area for the deployment of US troops and equipment.
    Polls show people in the US overwhelmingly oppose the war.
    The Democratic-led Congress has tried for a year to force Bush to order withdrawals or set deadlines for pullbacks.
    But Bush, supported by most Republican lawmakers, has prevailed in every showdown.
    Iran also is a main issue of Bush's trip, particularly in the five Arab nations he is visiting.
    Nervous about Iran's military might and rising influence, the leaders of these nations also are anxious about the confrontation between US and Iranian naval vessels off their shores.
    Arab allies want assurances that Bush is not interested in starting a war that could threaten military bases on their soil or the lucrative oil trade
    through the Strait of Hormuz.
    But they also want security commitments from the president.
    A White House spokesman said Bush called Jordan's King Abdullah II to update him on his trip to the Middle East, which showcases Bush's new drive to secure a peace pact between Israel and the Palestinians this year.
    The president told King Abdullah that he had been encouraged by what he found in Israel and the Palestinian territories and hopeful about the progress that can be made there, the spokesman said.

  • From Cooks to Captains: Filipinos in the US Navy


    In this video, I compare the historical treatment of Filipinos in the Navy to our modern experiences. The trend has certainly been positive. Filipino-Americans today are deeply appreciative of the opportunities available to us, but we also realize that there's still plenty of room for improvement. This digital story is, in part, a tribute to the Stewards who had gone before me and my peers. It also bears a message of hope for the future.

    Admittedly, the video a short study into a very broad subject. There are literally thousands of parallel success stories in the fleet, other branches of the uniformed services, and the United States in general. But this video should serve as a good starting point for those unfamiliar with historical and modern Filipino narratives in the Navy. With your help and a little more work, I intend to submit this work to the Filipino American National Historical Society (FANHS) for their consideration and collection.

    This video was produced for Dr. Schrum's postgraduate Digital Storytelling course (HIST688/HE792) offered at George Mason University in Spring 2021.
