DID YOU KNOW? The first soldier ration established by a Congressional Resolution, during the Revolutionary War, consisted of enough food to feed a man for one day, mostly beef, peas, and rice. During the Civil War, the military moved toward canned goods. Later, self-contained kits were issued as a whole ration and contained canned meat, pork, bread, coffee, sugar and salt. These days the MRE provides about 1,200 Calories . They are intended to be eaten for a maximum of 21 days and have a shelf life of three years (depending on storage conditions).
