Cool pics, housil - thanks for sharing them. I recently ran across a case of MREs from late 2003 that had a similar TTI color (though maybe not as dark in the center).

Re: eu rations similar

Hi guys (...) The european (read Dutch, German and French) rations (main dish) are rather similar since they come from the same producer/factory.
