I remember "shake and bake" from Viet Nam but it referred not to mixed
aerial/explosive attacks but to young, first term, soldiers who had been run
through a rapid non-commissioned officer course and promoted to sergeant on
graduation.  Presumably named from the cooking product of the same name
(whose commercial had the southern father complimenting his wife's fried
chicken with the response from two little girls, "That's not frahed, Daddy,
that's Shake'n'Bake, and we heyupped.")
