We Had MRE Thanksgiving, And It Was Disgusting

Sometimes MREs are a lifesaver. Like when you’re on Day 10 of a field op, or stuck in the middle of Afghanistan with just a bunsen burner, and a rock…or something. But they aren’t what you’d want gracing the table when it comes to Thanksgiving with your family.

Still we couldn’t help but imagine what would happen if a veteran tried to get away with serving MREs on a holiday that is entirely dedicated to eating warm, delicious, glorious food.

If it’s ever crossed your mind, then you probably need to see this. Pro tip: When you get out of the military, leave the MREs behind.
