A Look At The U.S. Military “Meals Ready To Eat” Kits After The Biggest Menu Overhaul In 35 YearsNew MREs
Military MREs, or Meals Ready to Eat, a.k.a. Meals Rejected by Everybody or Meals Rejected by the Enemy like many troops call them, are getting overhauled.
After nearly 35 years in combat and training, almost everyone who has come in contact with an MRE has a joke to tell. Although engineered to keep troops alive under austere conditions, MREs rarely get any love.
