    Actually, my MRE’s sort of work that way. Just add water to the chemical heater. You don’t get fire per se, but you get a good deal of heat and a resulting nice hot meal.

    MRE’s = Meals Rejected by Ethiopians. But, I suppose they’re better than C rats.

    C Rats, ugh. Here’s my story. A “John Wayne” P- 38 in every box. Still have a few 40 + years later.

    I could barely eat the canned bread or cookies.

    I would trade anything else away in the box that I could. You would be surprised what guys would give up for the stale 4 pack of Chesterfield cigarettes that would light up like flares when lit with damp matches.

    The canned beans were not too bad if you could heat them up with a little C-4. At least there was a small roll of toilet paper included in the box for emergencies.

    My dog, Ruger, 77X9, loved the canned ham and eggs. It smelled like Alpo to him and me.

    A hand made sign by the C-RAT pick up point said “Free Grenade With Purchase.”

    Thanks for reading,
