The following excerpt is from the 360th Reconnaissance Squadron history for the period January - March 1967:
"The month of January 1967 saw the completion of a full month's distribution of "combat liquor rations" to aircrew members after each combat mission. This ration is dispensed at the centralized maintenance and intelligence debriefing following the completion of the mission flown. The liquor ration was obtained in coordination with the Flight Surgeon's Office. The squadron Intelligence Section controls the dispensing of the combat ration and also maintains the necessary records for control and requisition purposes."
