    I love combat ration packs, and routinely watch a YouTube channel to see what is available from around the world. Although I am familiar with most U.S. MRE's, it's nice to get a well rounded view to add to my perspective. Let's see some improvements made to the U.S. combat meals!

    Have you ever tried dried potatoes and flour, along with some rising and used that to make French Fried potatoes?

    Limited food sources make for inventive cooks.

    My buddies wife used to make us burritos to take to work and we'd throw them under the hood on our way. Nice and hot by the time we arrived. Does that count?;)

    Comes in handy for anyone in the trades when it's cold also. You can put your tubes of caulking under the hood to warm up before you need them.

    I'm not sure what my dad got as rations, it is one part of the experience we never touched on. He was in the horse cavalry with Pershing in Mexico chasing Pancho Villa and the motorcycle infantry in WW1...we went from the horse cavalry to air cav in one generation.
