    Army colonel tries 40 year old C-ration pound cake

    WASHINGTON – Forty years later, Henry A. Moak, Jr., still loves his pound cake.

    The Army colonel popped open a military C-ration can of pound cake from 1969 at his retirement ceremony, and dug in.

    Moak got the drab olive can as a Marine helicopter pilot off the Vietnamese coast in 1973. He vowed to hang on to it until the day he retired, storing it in a box with other mementos.

    After a formal retirement ceremony, dozens of friends and relatives joined Moak in the Pentagon's Hall of Heroes as he opened the can to cheers. Moak joked earlier this week that he hoped the can wouldn't explode. It let off a whooshing sound as the pressure seal broke.

    "It smells good," Moak said as he put a handful in his mouth. He jokingly staggered back a few feet and loudly cleared his throat, while one person yelled out, "Eeww, gross!"............
