Is someone, somewhere, within CAP currently re-looking this?
Who "owns" the doctrine right now?
Why is so much so static?

To the MRE portion of this discussion, I stocked up last night unexpectedly.

I was at American Science and Surplus w/ #2 son and they had Sopako MRE's, w/ heaters for $6 - that's a great price when
you don't have to pay shipping.  https://www.sciplus.com/  Vintage Nov 2016.

I'm also seeing them on Amazon in the under $7 range w/ Prime by the case of 12, so certainly not a major deal these days to get them.
A unit ramping up some GTs could order a single case and fill 6 each with no issues.


I grabbed a few each of Chili Mac (The king of MREs), Tortellini, & Beef Ravioli - I can swap out the aging Mountain house
stuff in my gear and bike, and not think about this again for a couple of years. I haven't bothered with meals in the 72 hour
gear anymore.  It doesn't get used enough, and CAP doesn't go anywhere for more then a day, with less then a few days notice.
I could Prime them if needed.

I still have this ziplock bag full of heaters that are about 10 years old I don't know what to do with.  BITD, a lot of commercial
MREs shipped without them and I bought them for that reason, then never used them.

The Operations Directorate owns the curriculum and various members have indicated it has been in the re-work queue for years.

It's just one more thing on the list.

Eclipse, that sounds like you need only a couple of six packs and a kiddie wading pool and you've got a redneck hot tub, sir.
