    Didn’t realize there really were green eggs until they came out of that.

    No bullshit, in OIF III we were so far away from any other units that we made a Thanksgiving dinner from a pair of turkeys our Pesh guys shot. After feasting like vikings, a pair of Blackhawks showed up with the CG of MNF-I bringing us a Thanksgiving dinner in marmites. It’s the only time I can remember having Thankgiving twice in one day.

  7. RJ says:

    LOL! Ate and served! Also, cooked T-rats in a garbage can! Happy Thanksgiving to all my brothers and sisters – present, past and future!

  8. Jeff says:

    Ate from those on countless FTX’es over 5 years. Even ate a Thanksgiving dinner that turned out to be turkey raided from the MREs. What a letdown! But, it was hot & Graf & Wildflecken are colder than a welldigger’s fanny come November.

    Never had thanksgiving dinner out of a mermite container but I have had the privilege of eating the beard out of the bottom of the can used to sop of the bacon grease.

    Still can’t eat bacon

    Oh yeah. Familiar.

  11. Jon, OPT says:

    Yup, 96, 97, 98, 04, 05, 06… mermites or forward chow hall, same shit.

  12. Richard says:

    You haven’t lived until you’ve eaten dry turkey from a Mermite chased
    down with a few cartons of that juice box sized shelf stable chocolate milk!

  13. Harry says:

    Hot Chow on the objective, yum!!!
    I never knew hot food could taste soo good coming from one of those inserts…..

  14. Jim S says:

    Ate a couple of times years ago, and No Turkey can compare!!!

  15. SGT Drink says:

    I remember the turkey being raw at the bottom….

  16. Vince says:

    Oh, the memories of eating lukewarm turkey, sliced, beans, green with potatoes, mashed and sauce, brown in a shitty place with nothing but thanks for a taste of home. Then of course, the shenanigans that followed with a top secret bottle of fun from a care package!

      isn’t that gsg classified. I know when we got the TS/SCI bottles in the mail. Your buddies would help you with anything. If they got some.

  17. Pigmy Puncher says:

    You haven’t lived until you’ve eaten $hit on a shingle out of a mermite can 🙂

  18. Gabe says:

    My son is in AIT at Ft Benning right now. He got his Thanksgiving meal today and a much appreciated call home. Happy dad here!

    I ate Thanksgiving dinner from one while sitting on a sandbag with President Bush 41 and Mrs. Bush sitting 10 feet away chowing down with us. I remember thinking it was odd being so close to a president with an automatic weapon slung on my back.

  20. cy says:

    I remember how on range guard at Benning the raccoon’s would climb in the back of the humvee and pop open the container to eat the leftovers from supper. It would drive us nut chasing them away.

  21. Matt says:

    Thank you if you served or have served for this great country. You don’t get told enough but We The People appreciate you. You deserve the best.

    Thanksgiving of ’96 out at NTC. Sleeping in shelter halves in the Dust Bowl before and after rotation. Now, 19 years later, as a Senior Drill Sergeant, I got to serve Thanksgiving to trainees coming through Fort Benning. Time flies!

  23. maresdesign says:

    Yes…and Christmass dinner.

  24. schowgun says:

    Thanksgiving, Christmas, Marine Corps birthday………………for 20 years.

  25. Ranger Rick says:

    Hot chow served out of a Mermite, in the field at night with freezing rain; the good old days.

  26. usaeod911 says:

    Many Christmas and Thanksgiving meals eaten out of a Mermite, on those really shitty days, it was a nice warm meal that keeps you going.

  27. Cap'n Mike says:

    Also manned the hand wash station 15 feet in front of it.

  28. DEEBEES says:

    only once… that was enough
