MCI (Meal, Combat, Individual) 1980 Case Review
One of the MREInfo.com forum members, mreheater72 from Germany, has quite a collection of rations as you can tell from the picture below:
One particular thing in his collection is a case of MCIs (Meal, Combat, Individual) that was packed in 1980. This was the last year that MCIs, also affectionately known as combat rations, c-rations, or just plain “c-rats”, were produced. mreheater72 decided to take us on a tour of what the contents of this case looks like now, 27 years after they were packed. This review originally occurred in May, 2007.
Note: the only ration parts out of sync with these pictures are the B-Units and some of the cakes/nut rolls. The pictures of most of the cakes and nut rolls are from a case of mreheater72’s 1979 MCIs. He didn’t have any pictures of the contents of the B-Units so I took some pictures of some 1979 B-Units from my collection. So the B-Units and pound cakes/nut rolls you see in the following pages are 28 years old while everything else is 27 years old.
