Check out this review of the first U.S. 24 Hour MRE ever produced, the RCI (Ration, Combat, Individual). This video has a nice blend of fully edible food, strong aged cigarettes, and full hazmat-worthy examinations of the not so edible portions of the Ration as well. The RCI was first produced at the tail end of WW2 with around 11.4 million in it’s first production run. And throughout The Korean War, 104 million were produced & running at $2.00 a piece – that was no cheap operation for the time.
This RCI took a long time to find – I donated 2 to private and well respected collections, kept one for my own collection, opened this one, and one each to Oldsmokey and RC Gusto. Stay tuned for their eventual reviews as well.
And thank you everyone for watching & subscribing – hope
you enjoyed this one, as I certainly did making it!
