SAYWHAT Members respond to the magazine. Bon Appétit


You might have a hard time finding this military base delicacy stateside.


I very much enjoyed “The World on Your Plate” [November 2017] and agree with Col. [Steve] Sliwa that Annandale, Va., is an excellent place to find au- thentic Korean food. One of my favorite Korean dishes that was not included in the article was budae jige, literally translated as “military base stew” — basically kimchi stew with various meats that can be obtained on base like spam, hot dogs, etcetera thrown in.

The statistics paint a less-than-rosy picture as the Army tries to sustain a responsive and cred- itable fighting force. One of the statistics was particularly both- ersome: 52 percent of parents would not recommend military service for their children. I find this disheartening,


and it probably stems from the concern of having a child killed or injured in combat or through accidents. Is there any statisti- cal data that would show a com- parison for the same age group on deaths/injuries in the civil- ian world? I would be curious to know if there are any major differences in these groups to either confirm or challenge a parent’s concern.
