Re: new Ukrainian ration

Ukrainian rations are basically Russian, which to me looks and tastes like dog food. (Kasha, etc) If I saw refried beans for the first time, I'd probably puke too...

Of course, I was only making the Princely sum of $90 a month then, so that was serious money! Combat pay of another $65 a month AND tax free more than doubled my pay. $2 a day to g...
