10 Military Food Rations From All Around The World

Generally speaking, MRE’s (Meals, ready-to-eat), mostly used as military food rations, sound pretty great. After all, it’s a meal that’s supposed to stuff you up pretty good, comes in a compact package, and, most importantly, is pretty cheap – so what’s not to like? Well, even though it might sound pretty good in theory, the reality is a little bit different. And to show you just what kind of food soldiers have to eat every day, Filipino YouTuber David Hong has set out on a quest to try out different military MRE’s from all over the world.
