The post title is an inside joke... the fam'bly knows that Sam has caused Cadbury-Schweppes to build a new Dr Pepper bottling plant whenever he was reassigned somewhere. That and the fact the Commander had his own PALLET of Dr Pepper delivered to his ships by air once a week when he was at sea. We've been unable to verify the rumor that the Navy designated Dr Pepper as a mission-essential commodity aboard USS MASON and USS MONTEREY in the past, but we don't doubt it.
So, good news. For Sam. As for the rest of us? Our mileage MIGHT vary.
