The eat of battle – how the world's armies get fed
Newcomers | U.S. Army Central
The military promises to feed you and they do so primarily by using three separate methods: mess or chow halls; basic allowance for subsistence; and Meals, Ready-to-Eat MRE. If you are enlisted in the U. Army and reside in the dormitory or barracks, you will be given your meals for free in most cases. Most chow halls offer four meals per day: breakfast, lunch, dinner, and a midnight meal. Some are open 24 hours a day.

Basically, anywhere men are separated from women, the organizations do not want them to be distracted, or to become restless and thus misbehave because they are overwhelmed by sexual desire. It is true that most men in military training experience a decrease in sex drive.
The Salvation Army exists to meet human need wherever, whenever, and however we can. Each year, millions of children don't have any Christmas gifts to unwrap because there's no money in the budget. Over 90 million Americans become survivors of natural disasters every year.
