    My roommate is considering joining the ARNG and I want to put him under GRAP, but he wants to know what exactly and honestly cooks do in the middle-east. He doesn't want to do any fighting, engage, or be engaged by hostile action, or any dangerous situation. :ugh:

    It would probably depend on the mission of the unit he gets placed in. Some units, the cooks probably do their normal MOS. Our unit for example, all the cooks were placed into maneuver platoons and are doing all of the things your friend didnt want to do.

    Civilian:

    He's basically going to be a "cook" which means he puts things into an oven on a large or medium sized base in Iraq (chow halls). He will either have his own, or share a trailer to live in and walk to a shower trailer to take showers. He will also have to shit in porta-jons everyday for as long as his contract is. Also, long hours and nothing to do other than watch movies and be around a bunch of stuck up military people all day. His co-workers will be from india.


    Edit: Oh I didn't realized his MOS would be cook.

    Marine MOS:

    Our cooks got placed with Motor-T who did missions throughout the city all day, or got stuck on entry control points on either side of the city which took fire almost everyday, or got their share of VBIED scares checking vehicles or manning posts all day.

    :ugh:


    Then tell him that the ARNG is not for him because most chow halls are contracted out. I have only seen a couple of military personnel in the chow hall and all they do is take the temperature of the food out on the line and such.

    It's called the Armed Forces for a reason.
