Re: Why are some US Rations almost never seen?

Am still watching and deciphering/translating the video but some additional points: The reviewer comments that the FRH is large enough to heat everything at once - by everything he means the rice and the side dishes (the other stuff in the lunch bag) The reviewer may be commenting on the spoon becau...
