    all the MRE you want for free

    I would stick with civilian brands of MRE, highlighted on this site
    http://www.mreinfo.com/civilian/mre/civilian-mres.html



    Military MRE cannot be sold directly to the public. If you see military MRE for sale in gun stores, gun shows, etc, they are proably from a disaster like Katrina, which means they may not be good. MRE have a 5 year shelf life in room temps. A Katrina MRE is coming up on 5 years and probably sat in storage in a hot garage or warehouse most of the time.

    There is a LOT of preparedness info in this manual:

    http://www.abysmal.com/LDS/Preparedness/Preparedness.pdf


    They have sections on food and MREs. MRE section starts on page 73. Recommend everyone interested in preparing for disaster at least bookmark it. It can even be downloaded.

    If you ever made it down towards Rolla, MO, there's a surplus store in Doolittle that sells them for $6 each.
