The so-called "Third Country Nationals" or TCNs for short--they are employed by private contractors for a variety of positions. They come from India, the Philippines, Korea and elsewhere. These are some of the men who work in the dining facility. On Thanksgiving I was invited into the back to take photos; of course I printed them and gave them copies. One tip for eating in the dining facility: these gentlemen would wait until almost closing time to prepare their own food--if you came by at around that time and you were friendly with these guys, there was a chance you could get a bowl of curry.
