OK everyone, let's lighten it up a bit and try some pleasant diversion and jovial jocularity on say..........hmmmm, I don't know, how about..(scratch head here)..Rations. Yea, RATIONS!!! That's the ticket. So any way, whats with these new wave nutritionists replacin' my java with this other stuff? Crappicino my butt, and if I wanted Earl Grey tea, I'd join Star Fleet, wear tight uniforms and ask my replicator for it!! Don't know about you, but after 12 hrs in a night OP, I don't want to wrestle 3/4 of my patrol so I can get enough freeze dried crystals to jumps start my cardiac pump. Glad they're putting hot sauce in now though, tired of breaking the Tabasco in my butt pack, makes the rain suit sticky.

YYYAAAHH! Croatia 92/ sarajevo- had to wrestle the guys in my M113 to get those tiny 1 oz. bottles of Tabasco out of the US MRE packs. ( really, could have use the "old packs" where they had packs of 3 cigs, for "breaking the ice" with the locals! didn't smoke at the time!)( French section/Day rations packs had a bottle of wine in 'em!)

Sounds like you guys remember the good OLD days hunting mammouths. While we're at it, how about those neat little can openers we used to get?

HHHMMM! nothing better than a good mammoth steak, after a long patrol( for mammoth , of course!) ( you needed a huge work party, though, at the kitchen!)( ever try to open a mammoth with those small US P-38s, I prefered the Cdn version)

and whats with the peanut butter in an unresealable packet now?
what happened to the "toothpaste" tube?
it was the best for full ruck marches when ur only a "lil bit" hungry and needed something to tide you o'er till your eventual meal from a strange bag.
