I know. I first heard about Spam in From Here to Eternity (the novel) as part of the famous "You WILL prepare hot food for the men on patrol even though it's three in the morning" scene. They got grilled Spam and cheese sandwiches, possibly as retribution from the sleepy cook.

I guess if you got stationed at Pearl Harbor, you learned to enjoy Spam.
