    In the Aussie 24hr Rat pack we had tins of Egg & Bacon (Breakfast ration), hell if I know what it was loaded with, I presume preservatives but it used to burn your palate (the roof lining in your mouth) I ended up swapping it or tossing it every time.

    We also had Light weight Dehydrated Long Range Patrol Rations, which when reconstituted tasted like mushy cardboard, the entire concept of this type of ration eluded me, because you had to carry extra water to reconstitute it, so where was the extra weight saving?, the only possible place I could think of was in the skull of the knucklehead that thought it up in the first place.

    The "10 Man 24hr Ration Carton" were great.......if your intention was to starve your 10 Man Section to death, you basically got 12 oz per man per meal.

    ROFL!!!

    MRE.. They have several types now. USAID has ones that are different than what the military uses and we have 2 different packages now. Some of them are very very good. My 15 year old daughter ate the pack I brought back from Haiti! S'getti and meat balls were her favorite.
    They've come a long, long way from when I first came in.. Than God! The heating element in them is f'n a brilliant idea!

    Cut the tops off one and grab a few that you like then mix em together in the brown sleeve, add some spices or Hot sauce.. hmmmm, um good!

    Luna,

    That's because the officers deserve it. LOL.

    totally, officers call the shots but ncos run the show. now that's not to say that there aren't really good officers and really worthless ncos but by the by most ncos over e5 have their heads on straight. of course LTs have it rough because they have no experience (exibhit a: angel) and have to learn from their seargents all while taking command.for most second lieutenants the ncos really do it all and the LTs take notes

    I've eaten I don't know how many cases of MREs, but enough to know which ones are more palatable than others - I avoid the omlette one at all cost, and most of the chicken ones you can't go wrong with. If you want a good laugh, just read the container labels, and then rip it open and see how they just went overboard for describing rice or something simple. And just an FYI, the whole gum laxitive thing is a myth. Anyone who's eaten multiple MREs for a while can attest to that.

    My father often brought some rations with him back home after being sent out for training and such (he's a Dutch, medical Reservist, and has trained MOGOS / medical teams that've been sent out). Those rations were barely used (i.e. someone took out the tea but left the rest) and would be thrown away, so he took some with him.
    I had some MREs that were included. It wasn't that bad, actually.
    The tea that was included was really good though, and there was a bunch of other stuff that was pretty decent.

    However, this was when I was really young, so the memory isn't very detailed.
