The Food At Gitmo
Topic: Health and Wellness 1:59 pm EDT, Jun  9, 2004

I have a thing for MREs (Army food, Meals Ready To Eat, aka Three Lies in One) that borders between sadomaschism and routine torture. I like 'em. Which means, I have to go shopping for them every once and a while. I did a little google searching and found the Army Quartermaster's page, which originated the MRE. I also found some interesting other meals that have been brought about following the sucess of the MRE...

Notable is the Meal, Alternative Regionally Customized (MARC).

The Meal, Alternative Regionally Customized (MARC) is a self-contained, shelf stable meal that was developed by the U.S. Army Soldier and Biological Chemical Command (SBCCOM)/Natick, Individual Combat Ration Team (ICRT), Combat Feeding Directorate (CFD) after receiving an urgent request from the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) to expedite the development of a suitable vegetarian ration with unique dietary and component requirements designed specifically for detainees at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base (GTMO). The ICRT collaborated closely with Defense Supply Center Philadelphia (DSCP) and the U.S. Navy food service personnel at GTMO to determine salient performance characteristics and calorie requirements to maximize nutritional benefit and identify component restrictions. While created out of a need to support GTMO detainees, the meal may be used to provide for other detainees also. There are 10 different menus varieties. Each case contains 10 meals, 1 of each menu.

Now, the military has kosher and halal meals... they are here:

But I have to wonder what sort of PSYOPS went into making a different meal altogether.

They also have the humanitarian aid packages listed there as well:

And milk that doesn't need to be kept cool...

]"We need to increase the usage of condoms," said Carl Osvald,

What a novel idea! But it'd never work here....
