MANDERIN, Haiti, June 30, 2010 – Normally, a hot meal for servicemembers working in austere conditions means warming up a field rations package that includes a dinner, dessert and a snack.
Army Sgt. 1st Class Mike Larey, a Louisiana National Guard member and the head cook for Task Force Kout Men, serves up an authentic Louisiana-style meal to troops of the New Horizons-Haiti 2010 training exercise in Haiti. Larey trained as a chef at the Peabody Hotel and BB King’s in Memphis, Tenn., and Dragos restaurant in New Orleans. U.S. Army photo by Maj. Scott Bell
