One of the coolest things about being an army brat was getting my Dad to bring home those pre-packaged daily meal packs. You felt like some post-apocalypse survivor when you had them in your lunch. He could never figure out why we loved them so but we always had them stacked in the pantry.
They had tubed cheese, jam, and peanut butter and the best cracker package in the whole world. Deviled ham was also my favorite and it was the brand named stuff with the paper over the tin can wrapper that we all know.
Today I read an article about the current food provided for American troops and they are not much different from the Canadian ones. I do however, love the little extras packet with Tobasco sauce, Chiclets and toilet paper.
