Midway - replenishment helicopter
More facts from the Midway Museum map/brochure. There were approximately 4,500 sailors: 600 in engineering, 225 cooks, 200 pilots, 40 corpsmen, 2 physicians and 1 dentist. They ate 10,000 tons of food daily - 3,000 potatoes, 1,000 loaves of bread daily, 4,500 pounds of beef when served, 500 pies when served. Can see why this replenishment helicopter was busy?!
