Mama snacks is no longer there. You can bring food. You will have limited time to go to the shoppette since most days you get back after its closed.

The box of MREs is about $75, you will eat them primarily during the last 3 days in the field or you could bring your own stuff. During the first 3 days of ATLS you will be able to eat breakfast at the DFAC & buy coffee/snacks in the canteen in the building where the classes are held. Some of the ATLS classes would pool money to buy coffee & bagels in the morning & pizza or subs at lunch. I would recommend bringing an additional $40 in small bills to cover the extras, no one ever has change.

The number for the closest Domino's Pizza is 210-408-5599, and they deliver right to your hut door, no questions asked.

I am stationed at a large Army MTF. Until recently, the Domino's Pizza kiosks were located immediately adjacent to the surgeon general's Performance Triad posters. They're still located in the same lobby.

What a clown show.

Every time "performance triad" is mentioned I cringe.



I cringed a lot during a mandatory lecture today.

The performance triad is the missing step in the business model:
1. Steal Underpants.
2. Performance Triad.
3. Profit.
