I am giving a talk to 1000 HS students on the history of military rations. I have a lot of the actual research done, but am now looking for personal stories about military rations.
If you, or someone you know would like to share your thoughts, recipes (yes, soldiers get very creative in the field with the old "C" rations and the MRE's), and stories (they can be from your parents, siblings, etc. doesn't have to be you) I would very much appreciate it.
I have gotten some stories from a Navy cook, an air force pilot, my own husband, etc. And a rather intriguing recipe for Air Force Frappiccino.
Mods, if this is not appropriate, please let me know.
ETA: if you don't wish to share it here, PM me and I will give you my email address.
