Fueling Soldiers with New MREs
It's no secret that the military runs on its stomach. At the 2013 Association of the United States Army annual meeting and exposition, samples of new Meals Ready to Eat, or MRE's, were on display. MREs are the main operational food ration for the United States Armed Forces. It originated from the c-rations and k-rations from World War II, and later developed into MCI (Meal, Combat, Individual) rations used in Korea and Vietnam. In 1980 the MRE was developed and is still the U.S. Army's primary ration.
