    Brings back memories of my time in the service. My comrades and I would trade a lot. Out in the field those MRE's aren't that bad! :-)

    For some reason I found it interesting that the US was the only one to incude toilet paper.

    I know someone deployed who sent a picture of their Thursday night meal... a surf & turf with Steak & lobster tail! He says he eats better there than back here at home. I think those serving should get every comfort they can, God knows they deserve it.
