Re: The Holy Grail of MREs/Rations?

Actually those white pouch cold weather rations were not bad. Back in the day my unit accidentally got shipped a pallet or so of cases. JMHO, they could have been the first US 24 hour ration; problem was you needed a @#$%-load of water to re-constitute them.

Re: warning for veterans

Re: warning for veterans

Let me make this nice and clear so you don't fail to understand; I don't care whether you believe me or not, as I said I received this info from friends of mine who work for federal agencies. I'd say the burden of proof is on you Treesuit since you don't believe me, enough said.

warning for veterans

Hello everyone, as you probably know many restaurants in all 50 states are giving free meals to veterans on Veterans Day which is Saturday 11/11/17. I have learned from friends of mine who work for various federal agencies that this is a small part of the overall domestic intelligence gathering effo...

Re: Chinese new rations

I'm curious about this; I recently saw a review of a Chinese PLA ration on you tube and it included a questionnaire for soldiers to fill out telling what they liked and did not like about the ration and what could be improved in the ration/what they'd like to see added or removed. I assumed it was a...

Re: Civil Defense Carbohydrate Supplement Tin

It's kind of ironic when you think about it; the red dye in the supplement caused cancer, and if you were in a situation where you had a choice between starving or eating it, you could always leave the shelter and get leukemia from the fallout.

odd question, bear with me

Hey everyone, I have not posted for awhile due to some service connected health issues I had to address but I'm back. I was wondering if anyone might have a theory on why carob is not seen in place of chocolate in any of the rations discussed in forums. I was not sure if it has something to do with ...
