CAP Recognizes The 927 Force Support Services For Mission Support At Recent Events
MacDill Air Force Base, Tampa, FL -
Major Joe Mora of the Civil
Air Patrol honored the 927 Force Support Squadron with a Commendation of Appreciation
for the excellent food service at the EAA Sun-N-Fun 2018 and USAF Air Fest 2018.
Tech. Sgt. Jeffrey Horn with his capable and friendly staff provided delicious
meals at both events. “The U.S. Military has made a science of food service in
order to keep a military force at full mission capability” states Horn and the
portable facility used at both events reflects that effort. This palletized,
self-contained, portable kitchen can be quickly deployed worldwide and recently
returned from Mildenhall, England. This remarkable unit consists of a 20’ x 30’
all weather tent, generator, sanitation sinks, work tables and a Unitized Group
Ration (UGR) heater. The UGR is a pre-prepared block of food that can be
quickly heated for feeding a large number of troops. Horn and his 7-person
staff can feed up to 500 meals per day with this food service unit.
