"I was company RTO for Captain Pickett for a while, and at the end of every resupply order for meds, ammo, etc, I always added an order for a hot meal for 40 . . . 2 cases of beer, 2 cases of Pepsi and 3 gallons of ice cream . . . and always got the reply that they would see what they could do.  One day, deep in the jungle, when the choppers showed up with the daily supplies, there was no place to land, so they just kicked the stuff off the choppers and down thru the trees - C-rations and other stuff - and then the guy on the radio says, "Here comes the rest of your order."  And down thru the trees comes beef stew for 40, gravy, mashed potatoes, beer, Pepsi, and ice cream!  The ice cream survived the trip quite well, but the other stuff not so much."
