Hi, Carol,
This sounds like a family get together, mixed crowd. Still, to me the amounts look light. If it is all soldiers, you will need to increase the numbers I suggest below by another 10%.

I am not sure how big your full pans are, so I am going to give you weights or measures You can figure the size of your pan by filling with water and measuring the water.

Brisket 100 lbs
fried chicken tenderloin 120 lbs
If these are raw weights, you have enough chicken, but I would plan 170 pounds raw brisket, it shrinks a lot and people really like brisket.

rice dressing 7 lg pans (warmer size)
I start with about 8 pounds dry rice per 100
corn casserole 7 pans
You need about 11 gallons
green beans 5 pans
You need about 11 gallons
potato Salad (not sure)
You need about 4 1/2 gallons (35 pounds raw potatoes to start) for each 100 people.
rolls 2 each yes
Butter for rolls about 10 pounds
