Re: New From Michigan

I've been lurking for quite a while on this forum, but finally decided to register - one of the reasons was to voice my astonishment at some of the shipping prices a minority of ebay sellers are trying to foist off on buyers. One was selling a single MRE meal and charging $26-ish (don't recall the ...

I think it was dirtydave that once said: "the best tip on eating mre's is to not look at what you're eating."

Re: questions about 1986 MRE's

Were rations sent to the air force, navy/marines and army? The menus appear to be the same although...
