The concept is still valid. My guess - there are contracts in place to produce them if needed, and would expec...

Re: Who makes the best reproduction WWII rations?

Very good videos. Wonder if the guys in Russia had read/seen Jim Pool's books on Rations of the Wehrmacht during WWII.

Re: PORK-FREE MRE

Thanks! Very interesting. Never realized some countries wouldn't allow pork products into the country, even if for US use only.

Am thinking about shipping my son a case of TOTMs. They live in Santa Barbara, which had the fires and now diggi...
