Look who wasn’t exactly ‘ready to eat’ those Meal Ready To Eat rations!
Our favorite answer was “It tastes like regret. And sadness.”
A handful of Millennials were given some warmed up MREs served up on plates in a climate-controlled room with a table and chair. (That’s already better than what the folks in the field get, right?)
Without being told WHAT each course of MRE is, they were asked to comment on the food.
It was almost mean to lead off with the French toast that everyone seemed to think was pretty good. Becuase it only went downhill from there.
You get some really great reaction faces from some young adults who — let’s face it — probably have never really known what it meant to feel genuinely “hungry”.
They said they have a new appreciation for what people in uniform who eat this on the regular do without.
One dish was described as having an aftertaste of ‘soil’.
We’re guessing some of our readers would have some horror stories to tell about other things that can go wrong with MREs. Chances are, some have even found their way into a marching song or two.
We can’t say it to our men and women in uniform often enough.
Thank you for your service.
