Soldiers will never be completely happy with MREs, the Army’s combat ration. Having said that, they are now far and away better than the earlier generations of MREs (some old timer is gonna show up and tell me how hard it was in the days of C-Rats).
Most of the time, I was too busy to do anything with an MRE other than heat it up. But given enough time, troops will put their culinary skills to work to improve the meal. They may not quite make it to this level, however…
So, what’s your favorite MRE/C-Rat?
