a. Factors to Consider. Food service supervisors depend on your advice
on choosing the best site for the field kitchen.
Concerning the field
kitchen site, consider these factors:
Good natural cover to protect the
observation, and weather conditions.
Good access roads to allow supply trucks to move freely.
Dry, high ground by a slope for drainage and wind shielding.
Enough space to avoid overcrowding the troops or equipment.
Sandy loam or gravelly soil for good drainage.
b. Site Layout.
Figure 1-6 shows where to place the facilities that
you require to operate the field kitchen in the rear area. Make sure that
personnel camouflage the field kitchen area to hinder detection by enemy
aircraft, ground forces, or infrared sensors.
