Rations ~ US Meal Ready to Eat Story

US Army MREs packed in 1987 and 1992 [©BM]

Over the last twelve months, almost to the day, we have published a series of eleven features on the US Army Meal Ready to Eat or MRE story, writes Bob Morrison.


Articles in this mini-series appear to be quite popular, as every time we upload one we see a marked spike in viewing statistics, so to try to bring everything together on one page for easier reading we have decided to create this Index Page. If I have built this page properly, clicking on the photos below should take you staight through to the relevant article.

Please note that technically some of the US ration packs featured here are not categorised as MREs, but as they follow pretty much the same concept we have bundled them together. I plan to update this page if/when I am able to pen further articles.
