What is this Ration Box?

It looks like it says "RATION SUPPLEMENT SUNDRIES PACK" Screen Shot 2016-08-20 at 5.39.49 PM.png It comes from this video at YouTube.

Re: What kind of ration box is in this photo?

I asked my two Korean friends specifically about SPAM and Corned Beef this morning. I also asked my closest Korean source today about Spam and other tinned meats you open with a key. This person said that his family never ate SPAM or other tinned meats, although other people in Korea clearly loved ...

Re: What kind of ration box is in this photo?

Brings back memories. Two tours in Korea, 1976-78, then 1982-83. Haven't been back since. I lived downtown just about all the first tour and all the second tour. Yes, now people just pick up a cell phone... In Korea these days, the problem is that they can't put them down! Everybody's little world ...

Re: What kind of ration box is in this photo?

Hey, I'm amazed that you guys like to eat these! I hated most of the MRE menus from the late 1980~early 1990s when I was in. Well, I like watching you guys try them out on YouTube, anyway.

Re: What kind of ration box is in this photo?

I have more photos if you guys want a fuller scoop on this one - not really sure if it has all been pieced together into one whole thread yet & maybe that could be done! :) Thanks, Steve.

What kind of ration box is in this photo?

I have a photograph here of some GIs handing out their leftover parts of their combat rations to some Korean kids. Not sure if it's from the Korean War, but the condition of the kid's clothing, its color, and style seems to match the time period of the U.S.Occupation (1945~1948) and Korean War era. ...
