Marine Staff Sgt. Ross A. Riepman, Memphis, Tenn., sets out a few of the 200 dozen donuts made daily at Force Logistic Command’s donut shop at Camp Books, Da Nang. In addition to providing units in the field with fresh donuts, the shop, operated by Rations Co., Supply Bn., has a serve-yourself section where U.S. and allied servicemen can help themselves to donuts and a hot cup of coffee or a cold drink. Riepman said, “the Marines that come in here from the field really appreciate the service. They like it so much that we use about 180 gallons of milk each day, along with 80 gallons of fruit drink and 30 gallons of iced tea.” Over 3,000 paper cups are used daily by patrons of the serve-yourself donut shop.
