Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionMonrovia, Liberia – As the first group of service members arrived in Monrovia, Liberia, in support of Operation United Assistance, many of them didn’t know what to expect – from living situations to the day-to-day schedules. But what they did expect was pre-packaged rations – Meals, Ready-to-Eat – for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

However, that changed after a few weeks.

Hot quality meals were served for the first time on Barclay Training Center here as well as other locations across Liberia, November 9th. The meal provided a well-needed change of pace for Soldiers, and a morale booster.

Soldiers wait in line for the first hot meal served on Barclay Training Center Nov. 9, 2014. Since arriving more than three weeks ago, service members have only consumed Meals, Ready-to-Eat. The hot meal gave service members something different to look forward to and boosted morale throughout the camp.  (Staff Sgt. Terrance D. Rhodes)
