MREs getting some bad press

The Chicago Tribune recently published an article on field rations for U.S. troops that quotes my my dad and his coworkers. He's a biochemist who works in food preservation at the army base in Natick, MA. The article focuses on the negative- weight loss, soldiers complaining about the MREs (Meals Ready-to-Eat)- but does mention the challenges of combat feeding and highlights recent improvements.

As an aside, I was once offered a job at the Natick base with the coolest title ever: Liaison for Project Land Warrior.
