I must point out, in all fairness to the US Air Farce, that my brother only ate maggots when he was in survival school at Fairchild AFT in Spokane, Washington. The mess hall raised them and cooked them just to show survivalists that they could eat 'most anything, if they had to, and that maggots were their friends (they clean out infection really well, for instance).
Of course, his final exam -- the "Survival Trek" -- was to walk twenty-five miles across the face of Mt. Rainier in the snow, surviving with only the stuff he'd normally have on him if he bailed out of a plane. This prepared him for survial in Vietnam, and boy! if he was ever shot down over Vietnam and had to survive in the snow, he was ready!
