WWII vets loved their brand of cigarettes that were in their C-Rats. Viet Nam vets seem to love their Budweiser beer that was provided to them.

In 2004 while deployed to OIF I was given free coffee from Seattle's Best and Starbucks and became a coffee snob. I won't drink that Green Beans coffee if I was paid for it. What brands do you love and/or hate from your time in service?

Got to use one once stationed in Germany. I bought one that has stamped date of 1944. Changed out the leather washers works still like new today. Coleman squad stove.

The only enduring thing that comes to mind for me, LTC (Join to see), was Corcoran jump boots. I wore them from the time I finished jump school in 1970 until I retired in 1998. I still have the last pair I purchased.

LTC Stephen C. After pondering for an hour, I cannot recall when I stopped w/ spit shining Corcoran's! Unbelievable, to forget doing such a demanding task!

I only used Neutral Kiwi Shoe Polish on 'my' bayonet and 3/4 Ton truck in 1954 while in Korea! Inspecting officers had trouble w/ my bayonet at Guard Mounts.
