Darling Kay:

Weather worse, a real tropical storm, spray over the entire superstructure, the ship is really rolling and pitching. Stayed below decks most of the day and ate gedunks. Pretty dull day. Played a few games of checkers.

The Gedunk Stand on the USS West Virginia

“Gedunk” is the snack bar room of the ship.  There were often vending machines in the gedunk, or other snack items.  A love of snacks seems to be quite common among the Rogers, even today.
