Drill Weekend Dining(00:55)
During drill weekend, enlisted members of the Air Force Reserve have lunch at the Olympic Dining Facility at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash., and Staff Sgt. Joe Ramos, the dining shift supervisor, describes the meal options that are available.
Eating on base doesn't mean skimping on variety. Military dining facilities offer a range of food choices, including a "Fit Plate," for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They also offer specialty menus representing different cuisines of the world.

Staff Sgt. Joe Ramos: I'm Staff Sgt. Joe Ramos. We're here at the Olympic Dining Facility here at Joint Base Lewis-McChord. We're open seven days a week, for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and midnight meal. Here at the dining facility, we offer nutritious meals. For breakfast, lunch, and dinner, we offer a fit plate for people that are looking for a low-calorie intake diet. Every Thursday, we offer a different ethnic meal. For instance, tomorrow we'll be offering a Mongolian meal, you know, and stir fries, Mongolian buffet. Most bases or most locations, we go out for a worldwide menu. Whatever we're having here is, that's what they're having at Fairchild, or Kuwait.closeX
