Are We Starving Our Soldiers?

Meals for Marines in Afghanistan insufficient, report states. Apparently Marines trying to subsist on MREs are starving, losing so much weight that they need medical evacuation.

If there's any truth to this, Congress should get on top of it.

    This is just silly. Shame on whoever is trying to instigage something some nonsensical.

    I smell a Republican behind this corrupt garbage.

    Then again, anytime a Republican is involved, something bad is about to happen.

    I don’t see how this is possible unless they’re simply not eating all of them or just can’t carry enough for some of their extended missions. A single MRE has 1200 calories. I know people who lost some weight on the old C rations because they tasted so very, very bad but even those were edible once you got hungry enough. MREs are like ambrosia in comparison; starchy, bland, cardboardlike ambrosia.

    Oops a typo,

    In my previous posting, “some” was supposed to be “so.”

    You didn’t take that “Support our troops” stuff seriously, did you? That was code for, “Don’t mention the Emperor’s nakedness.” I thought everyone knew that.

    we called meals ready to eat ( MREs ) Meals Refused by Ethopians

    we always carried copious quantities of Top Ramen noodles

    You are really a champion for our boys, and I’m sure they appreciate all the fine work you do in support of them here on your blog. Really. You really support the troops but not the war. Right.
