h. Sanitation Center. Pick a site for the corrugated cans that is level, free of obstacles, and
as sheltered as possible. The site should be at least 50 feet from the kitchen (and, if possible,
downslide). Use rocks, planks, or dunnage to stabilize the cans if the ground is soft or wet.
i. Kitchen Company Level Field Feeding (KCLFF). Select a level site that is clear of
obstacles for about 600 square feet (56 square meters) for the setup of the KCLFF equipment.
When possible, choose a site that protects the KCLFF from wind and rain. Never use flammable
material as a base for the KCLFF.
7. Camouflage and Concealment. The field kitchen area must be camouflaged in order to
prevent detection by enemy aircraft, ground forces, or infrared sensors. When possible, select a
field kitchen site that can make optimum use of the natural terrain as concealment.
a. Ensure that your soldiers do not congregate in large groups while they eat.
b. Ensure the area and equipment cannot be seen from the air. Erect camouflaging materials
if there is not enough natural concealment.
c. If you are set up near front lines, ensure that enemy ground observation cannot see the
dining area. A site that is naturally concealed is preferred.
d. Ensure that any litter from packaged rations, disposable utensils, dishes, and tin cans are
buried, and that the refuse site is then camouflaged.
e. Ensure that any equipment that reflects light is camouflaged and kept out of the sun.
f. Ensure your soldiers use light discipline when needed. If a total blackout is necessary,
instruct the soldiers to stop cooking, The heat from cooking can attract infrared sensors.
g. Plan field feeding areas needed for a training exercise ahead of time. Make sure your
subordinates are trained to carry out the necessary steps to establish a good site layout.
8. The M2 Burner Unit. It is important that you ensure that all personnel are trained in
operating all food service field equipment and that they follow local SOP.
a. One M2 burner is authorized for each M59 field range.
b. The M2 burner unit consumes approximately two quarts (1.9 liters) of fuel per hour.
c. Check the unit for signs of damage.
d. Check the burner slots for signs of clogging or damage.
e. Check the fuel tank for obvious signs of leakage or damage to the fuel filler cap.
