http://www.fcw.com/article97397-01-18-07-Web I can't believe this is still a problem 15 years after I left the service. MREs are perhaps the most unbalanced food items I've ever ingested. I'm not surprised that these guys are losing anywhere from 20-40 lbs out there. I probably lost somewhere between 40-50 during my deployment. There has got to be a better way to ensure adequate nutrition in the field. Maybe they can set aside the funds for one F-22 to get a handle on this problem.
