The feeding of soldiers is a task performed every day throughout the world. Ensuring that these
soldiers are fed well-balanced, nutritious meals is a critical mission that affects both the
readiness and the morale of our Army. Food Operation Sergeants (FOSs) are the ones that see
this through day in and day out. An important step in this process is meal planning, support, and
control. It is during this process that the FOS carefully plans, coordinates, and carries out the
feeding mission for the soldiers.
