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...

Re: German WW2 rations

Actually I've yet to meet anyone who has simultaneously tried to do business with reprorations.com and had a good experience, although I have yet to order from them. As for how they can be sure they're making accurate replicas, your guess is as good as mine, and I'd be willing to bet they're not mad...

Re: German WW2 rations

Hello saab. If you're interested and not concerned with historic accuracy, you might try http://www.reprorations.com/ of course there's also the issue with authenticity, and I'm not sure how safe it would be to consume actualGerman WW2 rations :shock: :P

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

Thank you for your understanding Travelowl. I have seen restaurants scan a veteran's ID card, and I have no idea what kind of information the restaurant would have access to.

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

My apologies if this is in the wrong topic, I just thought of the irony of it.
