WWII Field Kitchen Display at the National Museum of the Pacific War

Add to plan Remove from plan

Mar 11 2017 to Mar 18 2017
Phase two renovations to the Pacific Combat Zone are finished and as part of the opening, our good friend Byron “Cooky” Vinyard from the Tri-State Living History Association will be displaying his WWII Field Kitchen. Learn the importance of a hot meal to our troops on the front lines, and how the members of the Quarter Master Corps served them.

Through his living history display, Cooky brings to life the responsibility, hard work, and dangers of being a WWII cook in the Quarter Master Corps. Cooking only with what they had in WWII, you won’t find any modern kitchen gadgets in this kitchen. Cooking recipes straight out of a WWII issued cookbook, you might get lucky on your visit to the kitchen to catch Cooky as he finishes up special treats to taste!

9 am to 5 pm. This exhibit is included in your museum ticket. The display will be set up at the Pacific Combat Zone.
