    I was down home for Ivan and the national guard was passing out ice and cases of MREs. Some of them are downright edible, others are best used as bait for catching something edible.

    A good bud who's been recalled into service in the sandbox, a heavy equipment mechanic, really has fun making MRE "bombs" and pisses off his co-workers on a regular basis. Things a bored serviceman will do

    Anyone who would take his kids to watch him blow stuff up is a GREAT individual!!! Wish I were as lucky.

    Try living on the damned things for a few months at a time. I still have nightmares about the chicken ala king. Nothing like coffee in the morning from a packet with cold water.

    I had an MRE today. When I crapped it felt like I was giving birth to my own guts and the hole wasn't big enough. Plugged the toilet right up. Other than that it was fine.

    Chip. LMAO. I know what yer talking about. Yeah one night, one meal was good. But oh God I know what yer talking about brother.
    Here is a picture of the menu from the "C" rats I took. Oh God talk about bad. Damn If the enemy didn't kill you the food would.
    Kernelkrink was correct. Some of the early guys had to eat "K" rations from WWII. Now there collector items. LOL.

    120 days? With the constipation you'll be lucky(?) if you survive a week.
