The Navy Celebrates its birthday every year on October 13th and we honor and recognize the brave men and women who have served and continue to serve our country. The Navy is looking pretty spectacular for 246! As we celebrate our National heroes, lets also look at Idahos Naval impact.
Ensign Austin Mickelson grew up in a military family. His grandfather was in the Army during the Korean War, and his uncle was in the Army during the 1980s. And now he's applying the lessons he learned from his Boise parents as he rises through the ranks in the Navy.
My dad is a US Navy veteran and he doesn't talk much about the heat of the battles, but he does talk about what the food was like. From what I gather, in the 1960's the food in US Navy "mess halls" as my dad called them was decent, but kinda bland. Then later they spiced things up a little and it got better.
Now the US Navy is getting rid of fried foods. Why?
