Meal, Ready-to-Eat (MRE) Keeping Soldiers Fueled

Meal, Ready-to-Eat (MRE) Keeping Soldiers Fueled


Us Forces have been involved in operation enduring freedom since its start 11 years ago That’s plenty of time to build infrastructure nice roads buildings and some pretty nice child holes in the process But what about those guys that are out in the field? Well, there’s the MRE Trusted for decades, but little is actually known about what goes on in this little brown plastic bag But I’m going to break that down for you, right now. The history of Soldier rations goes all the way back to the revolutionary war but the modern Meals Ready To Eat or MREs development Began in 1963 and went through several changes before making it to the meal we know today. Each meal is convenient, portable, and packs Roughly 1,200 calories with the necessary nutrients to keep troops in the field on the move Sergeant Jacqueline Ward from New Kabul compounds Battalion Aid Station says that getting food nutrition while Servicemembers are outside the wire is just as important as when they’re on camp Soldiers in the field need something that’s going to provide them with enough calories and enough energy to help get them through the day MREs provide a balanced level of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats that will allow them to maintain enough energy to get them through the day and accomplish the mission whether in training or in real-world situations most Servicemembers have at least eaten an MRE once and Surprisingly some can even name their favorite “Meal, Ready-to-Eat” Spaghetti meatball! Definitely not this one. My favorite MRE is cheese tortellini. Any one that has candy in it! packing requirements for the MRE are strict. They have to withstand parachute drops of over 1200 feet and shelf-life must be a minimum of three and a half years. And the price of an MRE? $7.25. Money well spent, if you’re hungry and in a far-out combat environment While nothing can raise morale quite like a hot meal in a dining facility The MRE has grown to be a staple in the military especially in the austere conditions faced by those outside the wire Senior Airman Cameron Curry Kabul, Afghanistan

  1. more calories so they can invade more innocent countries and kill more innocent children elderly and women ! AMERICAN ARMY,GOVERMENT AND ISRAEL ARE THE ONLY TERRORISTS ON THIS PLANET !

  2. I tried an MRE one time the main cors was really good bit the sides where not that tasty but I guess if that's your only foods it doesn't matter

  3. this is bull crap I think are men and women should get mre for free not no 7 buck is that what are government are president thinks how much there lives are I mean come on

  4. good ole MREs LOL miss these things with a passion…. killers used to go berserk when i chose these instead of dfac lol

  5. Uuuukth…. rank crap……… I feel sorry for GI's having to eat that stuff. C rations were WAY better than this stuff….gukkkth. I'm serious, it's really de-motivational….

  6. Those aren't bad honestly, I liked eating them except for breakfast rations. I guess I like them, because I don't them everyday.

  7. my dad was in the us army and he used to bring mre's home and to this day i still like them because i practrally grew up on them and now i buy them online

  8. I wish I new of way of getting them by the case I had friends when he go play army he bring back mres for me

  9. I have a feeling I should buy these mres while they're 7$.
    who knows maybe something big will happen and I'll be the last man standing.

  10. I am just wondering if the MRE meals are simply, add water , stir and consume, or do the ingredients become eat-ready upon opening bag? …and always without heat or?? (maybe thats impossible anyways). Never served in military, sorry, so I'm not familiar with such meals, though I totally appreciate the importance and nutritional benefits.

  12. it's pork. not long ago I heard about the gospel of Matthew said it's illegal for Christians consume the pork. not only muslims or Jewish

  13. If anyone can give the funny massive talking about mre's he was like "it's like a mcdouble if thr burger was made frim shit" idrk but if someone knows what video im talking about please post the link or title

  14. Love MREs, used to take that shit to school😂 n was still better than my school lunches. I loved their snickerdoodles and gum packets👌

  15. I don’t think a lot of people know that nowadays food truck stations and such are usually nearby. MREs are usually eaten in places when it’s too dangerous to have something like that around or far beyond enemy lines. I think we can all assume food trucks serve better food than stuff out of an mre

  16. I remember my friend served in Afghanistan and came home, so we prepared a meal for him. He is so happy to eat a home cooked meal after a long time that he cried tears of joy. Thank all of you for your service.

  17. I absolutely loved eating mres when i was in the military. Its not that the food itself tasted great or anything like that. it is that i always loved the idea if an mre as a kid. i first heard of them in tremors 2 and only got to eat them a few times in jrotc. i thought they were so damn fun and cool and since i expected military food to be like it was in ww2, i was so impressed by all the variety and beverages and heaters included. it felt like i was a unsc marine from halo. i guess it helped that as a poor kid with shitty parents i was used to only having 1 meal a day and it usually ended up being a few cans of chef boyardee or something. as a sci fi fan as well, i love the idea of the world ending in a catastrophic zombie apocolypse or something, BUT STILL being able to have fresh healthy tasty foods 10 years from now in these mres. it is comforting in a way.
