    I heard within the next few months West Point is adopting a new, healthier menu? Is this true?

    I was thinking of a "Top Ten Reasons" list, but your answer works just as well!

    I could give you more than 10.

    Of course, 11 years after our Plebe year, there I stood at the AOG tailgate reminiscing about how when our respective stints on Area Tours overlapped. There's no alumni group like Old Grads.

    :thumb: Well, what do they say about all the academies? They're a great place to be FROM?! :biggrin: By your 20 year reunion you probably won't be able to come up with more than a couple.

    It's true. They've been implementing it already. All the desserts pretty much were botched and replaced with healthier alternatives. In my mind, we only have about 1 good dessert a week. They've also gotten rid of a lot of the 'good' meals which were unhealthy.

    Do not fear Old Grads-- Coooooooooorn Chowder and Spicy Chicken Patty is still here.

    However, we had Chicken Crispitos without Congo Bar last week. Completely ruined my Wednesday....

    How about Ribs McBurton (sp)? Those couldn't have been healthy.

    It was Ribs MacArthur! Who the hell is McBurton?

    What about Jenny Lin? Is Satan's jelly roll still ruining mornings?

    Now that made me laugh- thanks for that! I have called enough minutes in my time to remember the name. Google "Ribs McBurton" if you don't believe me.

    I think they starting calling it Ribs MacArthur to be more PC right after they stopped having a real beast and a tough plebe year.
