Re: First Strike Rations

Wow, that's quite interesting! I never knew the feds were supplied with MREs and FSRs. Ha, well glad to share that. At least my office and one other major office I was assigned to. Not sure how widespread the practice is. Ours (now First Strike) sit in a locked supply room and seem to rarely get ac...

Re: First Strike Rations

Thanks for the replies. Truth be told, the person selling the First Strikes is, I am fairly certain, cadre at the Army Mountain Warfare School, based on my conversations with him. That is probably where he gets them. He won't entirely admit to anything, just tells me to "keep checking back for more ...

Re: First Strike Rations

Holy smokes, those prices are insane! What particular details could possibly make First Strikes worth so much? What should I look for? We have tons of them at work, in fact they have entirely replaced MREs following a lengthy mission we had last year where we depleted all of our MREs. I can't obtain...

Sopakco civilian meal questions

I have the chance to buy some of these from a local seller, but want to know exactly what they are. I did a lot of searching online but do not know for sure. These are loose and not in cases, so I do not have the outer box to refer to. 1) These meals are in clear bags, labeled "Meal, Individual". Da...

Re: Randomly Packed MRE's?? Need answers!

It sounds like they were Sure-Pak Meals . The civilian versions made by SoPakCo come in two case types - Red Sure-Pak logo and text on the box means the meals have heaters, while Black Sure-Pak logo and text on the box means they do not have the heaters in them. Funny you mention this, I had this i...

Re: Question about Menu No. 1 "Red Beans and Rice"

Interesting, and OP thank you for reviving this thread!

I have one of those cases, but I believe it is only labeled as being vegetarian on the end, not on the side. I think mine is 2003 DoP.

Is it worth opening up to explore the menu items inside, or should I leave it?

New member here, and very impressed!

Greetings everyone! And all I can say is…wow! I am completely blown away by this site and the forums. I guess you could say that I am astonished that there are people out there who are as curious as I am about MREs and whatnot. I have been using MREinfo.com as a research resource lately, and then I ...
