Re: Found this MRE at a flea market. Know anything about it?

The Red Pack coffees (folgers and tasters choice) for some reason tend to mold up at the drop of a hat, so I would not necessarily use them as an indicator of condition.

Re: Why are some US Rations almost never seen?

gschult9, I liked the video review of the Passover menu you posted. just wanted to let you know, during your review the canned fish that was included in that pouch made that a complete meal.

I would like to take a moment to apologize to the members of this forum, for my spelling and grammatical errors. I was on my phone when I made the other posting, big fingers…small keyboard and without the luxury of a proof reader. LOL I’ve worked inspecting MRE, UGR-H&S, UGR-B and other Operation Ra...

Re: Sloppy Joe - Menu 17 - 2007

Sloppy Joe has been a favorite of mine as well. I will hate to see it go away with next years production. It is going to be replaced with Taco meat instead.
