    "thunder buckets" on BUFFS -- the very ultimate low-tech porta-jon.

    I vividly remember in my first year on Barksdale a young Major taking considerable umbrage with the umpteenth time another member of his flight crew ordered fried chicken, beans and mustard potato salad for a meal which was going to wind up in the thunderbucket during their next training mission ...  SAC used to run a "flight kitchen" and as part of the alert-support crew while working the range, I got to drive the 'cookie wagon' that delivered box lunches to a variety of destinations around the flightline/alert pad. Could always tell the aircrew boxes -- "high nutrient low residue diet" ... never worked up the nerve to peek inside.
