    If they had couches in the desert, he’d be sleeping on one.

    MRE use began about 1981 and full scale use about 1986. C-rats were still in use, but I recall a couple of other rations, Air Force in flight and at least one other. We got them while fighting wildland fires in the West in the 1970s.

    MRE’s would have been upscale chow from the CRAT’s we ate in 1970.

    The lovely canned ham and eggs smelled like Alpo to me. My dog loved it.

    I traded my cigarettes, Chesterfields 4-pack, to anyone who would give me canned bread or cookies. I kept the toilet paper for emergencies. I still have, for no good reason, my John Wayne can opener.

    I still wear my old dog tags when I fly, just in case, you never know.

    You could light a small piece of C-4 from a Claymore mine as a fire starter to cook your delicious CRAT’s gourmet meal. Just dont stomp on the fire when you are done. You might get a bang out of it.

    Yeah….I ate MREs on wildfire crews, too. They last forever and if you are hungry enough, aren’t all that bad for a period of time.
