MRE Menus

Military Meal, Ready to Eat (MRE) packages offer twenty-four different varieties of meals. The composition of the meals changes as production is adjusted to military requirements, new menu ideas, and preferences expressed by soldiers in the field. The US Defense Logistics Agency provided the information for the tables on this page, called MRE XXIV Menus.
