South Korean Vietnam-era Rations: 1969

Take a look at minute mark 1:07 of this 1969-dated video:



It shows some South Vietnamese soldiers being trained by South Korean troops of the "Fierce Tiger" brigade; and the Vietnamese guys are eating South Korean rations with, what looks like, U.S. MCI-style rations with the hangul title, "한국 전투 식량" (Korean Combat Ration). Along with the Korean MCIs, you can see that the Vietnamese are given heaping mess-tins full of rice!

Pretty cool. Never seen those Korean rations from that time.
