      I think it came in boilable bags, and me and my brother loved it when put on toast.

      He alluded to the name it was called by his fellow soldiers, lol. My father was a veteran of the early campaigns against Japan, he got drafted right after Pearl Harbor. He was already a veteran of the Marine Reserves, and an auto mechanic, so eventually he was assigned a water cooled machine gun, a responsible position. But that was after first serving in Texas as part of the mounted United States Cavalry, which we still had back then. I’ve seen the pictures of my father on his Cavalry horse. Decades later he could still ride.

      Anyway, I did ask him about Army chow, and he did talk of the difference in rations. The video got that right.
