    I got a bad chicken ala king once.... never ate it again, traded it or gave it away. Hated the Ham and death loaf too. Pork patty and beef patty were tolerable. The new ones are far and above out 80's MRE's. I keep one or two in my patrol car for when I can't break away to go get some chow.

    Best rations I ever ate were LRP long range patrol rations. other than that in 1963 we were issued Korean war issue rations they were still good. I have 4 cases of MRE on hand in case along with MY rucksack with essentials A winchester riot gun, M1A, and ak under folder as well as a tomahawk and several military knives pocket and sheath.

    I love watching his videos, it almost makes me want to bust into my stash and see if the John Wayne bar is as bad as I remember.

    Boer War ration anyone?

    They are indeed the best tasting ration I've ever had.

    When the Army was switching from C-rats to MRE's, we had an FTX and our Mess Sergeant grabbed a bunch of LRP rations they were rotating out at the warehouse. Man, those things were tasty! They required hot water to reconstitute the main dish. Think of the Army's take on a Mountain House meal. They were light as all get out as well. We were used to cans, and the LRPs weighed nothing compared to those.

    They do require allot of water but they sure tasted great and were filling. I wish they would have adopted them but they are expensive so were held for Special Ops use.I got them while in Special Forces

    I wonder if the Army still uses something like the LRRP ration?

    There was a really cool story about someone who found a Mountain House stash in the attic that was over 30 years old, and when opened, everything was still good.

    "In 2001, the LRP-I was merged with the Meal, Cold-Weather (MCW) ration to create the consolidated MCW/LRP ration. As in years past, this was done in order to further standardize supply and save costs, as both were considered compact, high-energy meals that were designed for use by active soldiers in the field. The meal weighs 1 pound (500 g) and comes in 12 different entrees."

    We have Gun Jesus and his Apostle, Steve!

    I seriously love watching Steve eat MREs while I eat. Makes whatever I'm having taste that much better.
