Re: Help With K Ration Authentication

These look legitimate to me, just based on watching Steve1989's videos along with seeing other pictures on the internet. I can't speak based on real life experience. What does it smell like? Does it have an old library book type of smell? If so, I'd say there's an even better chance they're legitima...

Re: Unopened 1941 & 1944 Scho-Ka-Kola on Ebay. German WW2 Chocolate

Thanks for sharing, this is really neat! Although I could afford both of them, it would be hard to justify spending $800 on vintage chocolate, as cool as it would be to own them. For posterity's sake, I will upload the images here on the forum. 1941: s-l1600 (3).jpg s-l1600.jpg s-l1600 (1).jpg s-l16...

Re: Meal, Flight, Feeding Individual

Thanks for sharing some pictures with us. IIRC, there was a post a while back where someone posted some from sale, some people said they bought them, but no one shared any pictures until now. Interesting to see there's not much difference, other than the cardboard sleeve, which was an interesting ad...

Re: Cabelas has the MRE Pizza

So does Sportsman's Warehouse if you have one where you live. The last time I went to the one nearest to me, they were completely out of stock. Sorry for the dumb question, but is the pizza same with the ones developed by the Natick Labs? Yes, it is. Steve1989 did a video on the official MRE and it ...

Re: My Dad's Field Chow Experiences

Thanks for the responses! Here are some answers to your questions: Thanks to your father for sharing! It was a good read! Could you ask him if he ever got to trade rats with soldiers from other places and what he thought of it? "I never traded rations with other Nations. In Korea there was no desire...

My Dad's Field Chow Experiences

Hi all, My dad wrote me an email and asked me to share his experiences with rations when he was in the Army. I hope you all enjoy reading it as much as I did: "I enlisted in the fall of 1984 as an Army Infantryman. While in the Delayed Entry Program we were taken to an Army Reserve Center and given ...

Re: Wornick Factory

Neat. If I were in the area, I'd look into volunteering on the weekends (assuming they're open on the weekends) just to see what it's like.

Re: Apple cider and lemon tea mix

2012 was the least year either of those items were included. Take a look at the accessory packet items listed for the 2012 menus: https://www.mreinfo.com/mres/mre-menus/mre-menus-2012/ Then take a look at the 2013 menus: https://www.mreinfo.com/mres/mre-menus/mre-menus-2013/ In my experience, the ap...
