Chow Hound

All the talk about C-rations made me drag out this old photo from my first tour–a L/Cpl sitting on an ammo can in some ville enjoying my C’s. Except for maybe the Ham and Slimers, I never complained about the C-Rats.

Semper Fidelis,

    I liked ham & slimers. Try heating them. I come from a Marine Corps family, they remind me of home ‘cooking”.

    Yes. Ham and slimers with 1/4” of grease on top. Yum yum
