Should be 1996-2000 but I've never seen ones with no menu description.
They are civilian, and the menu would be printed on a decal affixed to the outside of the case they came from.

Re: Mountain House Sales

Sierra Trading Post, at least in the store near me (they are also online) has the 12-serving version of this for $49.99, packed in a bucket. Item number was 481XU-99 when I bought mine on July 15.

Re: A Pack Civilian Rations

I believe the 0088 is the date code. I've had a few of the meals here and there over the years and they are exactly what they appear to be-- generally familiar MRE components in a different package. One odd thing was that they included red star mints, and those seemed to always arrive me...

Re: warning for veterans

Perhaps your friends are just pulling your leg. Relax, I wouldn't worry. I am a supervisor for one of the federal three letter Intel/law enforcement agencies. I also serve on a task force with seven other agencies. I have worked for a couple others as I've climbed the ladder. Most of my friends, inc...
