Re: Thought this was pretty funny

That is too funny :lol: I don't recall having issues with either the MCIs or the MREs when they were issued to us, 2 canteens are issued for a reason :wink: except that food poisoning I got from the MRE turkey diced w/gravy. This should probably have been posted in off-topic, my apologies.

Re: camel cigs question

Apologies if this is off topic, but the reference to doctors smoking camels somehow made me think of a portion of NBC training I went thru in the 1980s regarding blood agent detection, where we were instructed "if your cigarette becomes tasteless or offensive, spit it out ( :roll: ) and don your mas...
