    Chipped beef helped me stay well under my max weight limit when I was in the Army; I preferred to go hungry rather than eat it.

    Not, of course, that they had MRE’s in Vietnam. You could, however, do more with C-rats than you can with MRE’s.

    When I was in HM forces (circa 1970) we compo rations dated 1954-57. Wonderful. Everything in tins including the cheese posessed …. sorry processed.

    When I was fighting wildland fires for the US Forest Service, we had WWII C-rats into the early 1970s. We would be told "don’t eat anything from rusted cans. I wish I had kept a few cases of them…bet they would sell in eBay.

    I want to see those Vietnam MREs. It would be curious, the US Army was still using (buying) C rations during ‘NAM. MREs didn’t come out until the ’80s.

    You’re right. I was in and out of Nam from ‘66 to ’72, and never heard of MRE’ s. My favorite C Rat was Ham & Lima Beans. Although that’s not what we called them!
