If your battalion officer does that, they won't be a battalion officer for long. It's a simple matter of when you're going out on something that will keep you from base for long enough to warrant having meals with you, you just get them from supply before the mission's start.
you call Burgerking and bitch to the manager. It's (2016) war is a corporate, economic-political phenomena. Are you sure you even know how modern warfare is fought? Have you seen what a modern military base, or FOB looks like?

Seeing as how he is asking this question I think it is safe to assume he has never served.
Some friend probably told him a bullshit story about not eating for days or something and he is trying to confirm whether that is possible... calm down.
I once met this ~19 year old female Marine on a plane and was playing dumb while talking to her. She talked about how hard it was being in KANDAHAR in 2014, how they sometimes had to go days without eating. There are definitely faggots out there making up stories.

>>28441940 Where were you? The MPs poped a couple of antelope on North Vic a few times. I never had to resort to eating the local wildlife but did clear out the local PXs in 04 when haji kept putting RPG rounds through the refer trucks coming in.
