When I was serving in Germany back in the 80s, we all agreed that the 4 basic food groups for breakfast everyday was;

1) Breakfast sandwich
2) Hash browns
3) Coffee
4) Stars and Stripes

In Italy we were always a day or two behind, but one of the RAI channels had strippers after midnight.

considering your username and you were in Germany, this is a particularly unsatisfying list

I would have eschewed the propaganda and gone straight for Der Spiegel.

We were usually drinking beer until 3 a.m. the night before.

Comics pages in the weekday newspaper will be reduced from three pages to one, while the Sunday comics section will drop to eight pages from 16.

That's a lot of farking comics.  The new numbers match what my local civilian paper had when I was a kid decades ago back when printed newspapers were still relevant.

Look at the picture in the article: One page in the Stars and Stripes <<<<<<<<< one page in a typical newspaper. Stars and Stripes is  college newspaper/"independent" weekly sizes.

Considering he's still wearing a WWII-era uniform, I'm pretty sure he's just a cosplayer. Camp Swampy is actually an "immersive military experience" attraction for GI wannabes.

Stars and Stripes made me think of the M.A.S.H episode.  So I Gloogled and a Sheila Lauritsen popped up.

What SwiftFox typed above just before 5PM.
We were in WGermany & WBerlin in the 70s, rather before Starts&Stops  became digital. Spouse
Plumbicon was stationed at HQ AFN Radio in Frankfurt am Main & AFN TV in WBerlin, just across the Argentinische Strasse that intersected with Clay Allee from HQ Berlin Bde.  (had to resort to Gurgle maps, not laying hands on city atlas we had there -- it's here but likely packed away).

Tell the same joke too many times and people stop laughing. Tell it even more and you become an irreplaceable part of the nation's funny pages.

That it was. Besides the coffee and beer there are two other main things I miss about Germany, one of which really isn't German. Doner sammiches, good gods those things tasted like heaven when you'd been drinking all night! The other is the weird pizza toppings. I remember going to meet the parents of one of the German girls I dated back in the day and for dinner we had home made pizza and the toppings, besides cheese, were tuna and salami. It actually wasn't that bad. My favorite though was from this pizza place not far out the gates of Rose Barracks in Bad Kreuznach was what they called "Western" pizza. BBQ sauce instead of regular sauce, bacon, onions, hamburger and mozzerella and cheddar cheese.

Döner kebab - we had an Imbiss stand outside our apartment - is German. Tuna pizza was horrible. Squid was a pizza topping, too. (Let's just say that there are times I'm especially glad I'm Jewish.)  Grass-fed Yugoslavian beef - tenderloin roasts for under $3/lb until Congress got into a pissing contest with the EU over hormone-fed beef. The Greek and Italian restaurants were fantastische. Fresh semmeln that they baked in the grocery store on the ground floor of the apartment ...

/Rose in B-K? You poor barstage, locked away from the best beer in Bavaria.

You'll note in the link you provided that while he lived in Germany, he was Turkish. Pretty much all the Doner Imbisses I ever saw were run by Turkish folks. Hell even though it was invented in Germany, one of the food places on Incirlik Air Base in Turkey had a Doner stand. Still I suppose it's German enough if everyone that's ever been stationed there remembers them.

And while the first time I was in Germany I was stationed at BK, I came back after my stint in Ft. Hood and was stationed at Larson Barracks in Kitzingen for 5 years. Just a stones throw from Wurzburg and a short Bahnhoff ride from Munich.

I believe the official explanation is that the US Government has forgotten Camp Swampy exists, but continues sending it money because of how labyrinth their funding is. Since everybody at the Camp is lazy anyway this works out just fine.

Anyone catch that S & S article about the Navy captains swindling the military out of millions and selling Navy secrets in exchange for concert tickets and hookers?  Jaysus.
