Mess Staff

   The PsyWar Detachment Mess Hall, like every other department of the unit, was born of many other organizations. In the earliest days, the 2nd L&L provided the EM of the Detachment with their food, 3 times a day.
   It was not until "Exercise Longhorn", that the cooks and KP's of the PsyWar Detachment began operating as a unit mess hall.
   With M/Sgt Otis Cowan as mess steward, and Lt Jack Lehman, our first mess officer, a new building was procured exclusively for the unit. Many new changes took place to produce an attractive mess hall.
   When Lt Lehman left for OIC, Lt Joseph Howe became mess officer and continued the process of producing the most confortable and appetizing mess hall possible, one of the finest at Fort Riley.
   It is with pardonable pride that we look upon this building now----our own Mess Hall----and exclaim to all who can hear us...WHAT A MESS!

This is not a copy of the original.  However the text is as it was originally and the photographs are inserted in the same general location as in the original.  Many thanks to Elmer Horne, former 2nd Lt in the 2nd L & L and PsyWar Detachment (see Page #9), who supplied a copy of "The Psyn-Post" and without whose help this page would not be possible.

PLEASE NOTE:  Most links will open in a new "window".  To return to previous page close the new window.  Thank you.
