Day of food and clothing services of the Armed Forces of Russia

30



Today, February 18, the military personnel responsible for the food and clothing supply of our army celebrate their holiday.

As the saying goes: "As a soldier stomps, so he stomps."

It is worth noting that these words have a lot of meaning. After all, a “malnourished” and emaciated soldier, even with great motivation, willpower and dedication, will not be able to fully fulfill the assigned tasks.

At the same time, despite the fact that many call army food tasteless and unappetizing (especially those who happened to serve in the crisis of the 90s), the nutrition of a soldier is as balanced as possible. The food standards established in the army fully comply with the requirements of physiological standards.

Therefore, even in the aforementioned 90s, recruits who entered the service with a deficit of weight returned to the "citizen" in good physical shape.

However, feeding a soldier is only half the battle. He still needs to be dressed and shod.

Both of these tasks are being successfully solved today by the food and clothing service, which is part of the Logistics of the RF Armed Forces.

It is worth noting that, like most army services, it originates in the Petrine era. In 1700, by order of the last tsar of all Russia, the post of general-provider was established. Responsible for the distribution of provisions were in each regiment and were called food masters.

Since then, 322 years have already passed. The name of the posts and services has changed several times, but the essence of the work of these military personnel has remained the same - the uninterrupted supply of the army with provisions and things.

One of the main tests for the food and clothing service, as well as for the vast majority of army units, was the Great Patriotic War. Nevertheless, despite the extremely difficult situation, the rear services coped with the task assigned to them.

During the war years, more than 2 million tons of grain were collected and sent to the front on the territory of the USSR alone. Another 1,6 million tons were transferred to the civilian population. In addition, from 1941 to 1945, the Red Army received 73 million tunics, 38 million overcoats and 11 million pairs of boots.

Finally, it is worth adding that the work of the food and clothing service does not stop for a minute even in peacetime. The modern Russian army is fully provided with things and food. Thus, the principle “a well-fed soldier is the basis of the army”, thanks to the efforts of service representatives, has become an inalienable rule for our troops.

    The second trump position, after fuel.
    Interestingly, it wasn’t Serdyukov who accidentally introduced these holidays?

    Very dubious saying.
    My brother served in the 90s in the Moscow region, he was very hungry. He returned visibly thinner.

      Absolutely agree! Let's take the military school of the Strategic Missile Forces in the city of Serpukhov, there is information that there are complete seams, the cadets are starving, in the canteen on the territory of the school the prices are two to three times higher than in the city, parents with a salary of 15 rubles are forced to buy printers, paper, etc. it looks like a kindergarten and a school with curtains!

                  Such a diet was in many places) Especially in the north. Potatoes must be brought, stored, distributed. Often some of the conditions were not met. And replacement with sublimates is quite a common thing.

            At the same time he served in the Kaluga region. The food was disgusting. But the fact is that you get used to everything, so they ate what they gave.

      Was he starving?) Even according to simple norms, he received as much as he was supposed to. But for 18-year-old boys, after their mother's cutlets, a strict schedule and food at the same time turns into supposedly eternal hunger. They want to eat all the time and there is no willpower to rebuild. There have always been many of these. It's just that kind of perception. In reality, hunger did not threaten him even in the nineties.

        It was starving. My brother served in a construction battalion in Pushkino 94 95, terrible hazing, they ate what grandfathers left. I ended up in the hospital with another sore, the pressure was very low. The military doctors asked: "Did you eat badly at home?" You still read about hunger on Russky Island in 92-93 winter, the death of conscripts from starvation, many with exhaustion. And then I see you are a great expert.

          I know everything there. And what happened there and who is to blame. I can give another example. Khabarovsk 49 km. Anastasievka 95 years old. There everyone dreamed of fish because meat every day. But there were troubles with bread. The bakery was far away. Often very much replaced bread with crackers. But I'm talking about something else. There, they caught up with one porridge, if necessary. Perlovka, cut. In 100 gr. 370 kk. 200 gr each for breakfast and dinner and you won’t get hungry anymore) this is a pure product without additives. Somehow in the nineties we were in the SVU at the training ground and it started to rain. The roads are washed out and we are children. Food was provided to us literally with our feet. And there were always enough shortages after that. Even when things got better.

            I served on 73 km from 93 to 99, first urgently then as an ensign in a clothing warehouse, it was normal with food, not a restaurant of course, but a bakery was in Knyaz-Volkonsky, I went there for bread myself. I traveled all over the warehouses, both food and things, in the district, even went to Obor to the clothing base.

              Yes. There was a bakery there) In the Lefties, it often happened that bread was not delivered. I don’t know the reason, but it happened. Well, apparently then you know that glass in the tank regiment. Dining room. It was believed that they were fed there in general for slaughter. Which by the way is true) My father often brought me there as a child to feed)))

        Especially among the villagers, of whom there were many, they got used to village food, and they correctly noted that the routine was unusual, it was necessary to reorganize, and you can’t drink tea with bagels, as it was at home.

          When you sit on the system, it's hard for everyone. You endure it and everything becomes as if you have always lived like this. Well, of course, messages are flying home that their kids are starving. Then you will be tempted to show your parents that this is not so.

      Colleague, are you aware that Suvorov himself began his service as a quartermaster?))
      Yes, and the quartermasters are very different. For example, Army General Khrulev, who during the years of the Second World War forced the entire rear of a huge country from the Far East to the units advancing on Berlin to work like clockwork. There are not positions, there are different people.

    So precisely because Suvorov knew the commissary service from the inside, he could evaluate its contingent according to their deeds.

    PS
    Replies to comments are not working for me. Apparently, he screwed up somewhere. wink

    There is something to smear in the evening laughing pokakayu a little / inspired /. I was involved in this service for exactly a month. A piece / Guards Senior Warrant Officer King / such a surname, Belarusian / went on vacation to the Union, and apparently, because of my surname, he left me, young, as a captain. gave out. And !!! I still wonder who came up with such a norm: 11 cigarettes without a filter for smokers and I forgot how much sugar for non-smokers. So that he doesn’t suffer and tear packs, he issued it immediately in 2 months ... how he cried over empty boxes wassat
