I've got a couple still in the paper around here somewhere - I just saw them the other day.Question for all you guys who ate C-rations? Who designed the P-38 can opener? Got to be one of mankinds greatest inventions . The can opener not the C-rations.
Yeah, we had sort of gotten used to MREs at Bragg by '82 or so - had only had them since '81 maybe, if that early. Then we ship off to Italy in '83 and bam, right back to Cs. (My favorite was turkey roll). But by '85 we had MREs in Vicenza and by the time I got back to Bragg Cs were a thing of the past - long forgotten.Gave away my last P-38 to a young soldier in my section when I retired almost 10 years ago. Sure wish I had kept it. As bad a C-Rations were--they were much better than the first MRE packaged meals. The old dark brown colored packs were pretty bad. At least I was sent to West Germany in 1984 and I got to eat Cs for a few years until they ran out.
