1969 Vietnam Meal Combat Individual C Ration Spaghetti Vintage MRE Review Oldest War Food

Fascinating stuff. Ever wanted to know what those poor soldiers ate or what their meals really looked like way back when? You know, those meals issued by the United States Armed Forces from around the late 1950s? Well check out this 1969 C-ration meal: spaghetti with ground meat, that you can almost smell. (Barf). These can meals were eventually replaced by those Meal, Ready-to-Eat (or MRE as they were more commonly known as), and thank goodness too since these cans seemed to have taken FOREVER to open...

Check out this full review of a Vietnam War MCI or "C Ration"! This is the food US soldiers ate when deployed in the Vietnam War. Simple, much like an MRE but the meals were in cans. They used to have cigarettes in Rations until 1972. This one here turned out to be in pretty bad shape except the cigarettes.
