In Vietnam, the army fed three classes of issue meals: "A" rations were fresh foods (with possibly powdered eggs), this meal was found in a chow hall (mess hall or today called a dining facility). "B" rations were one gallon cans of food, designed to feed groups of men at a time; this would often be set up in the field, with field kitchens and cooks. "C" rations were twelve meals to the case, canned foods, each meal per one individual. On the home front, not much had changed in food availability. You could get anything you want at Alice's Restaurant.
