Comment 1[edit]

Should there be a page about military rations that then links to this page? Tfine80 20:20, 30 July 2005 (UTC)

If someone wants to make the page, I'd say yes. I'm sure militaries besides the United States feed their military personnel rations as well. :) --TransUtopian 15:54, 3 October 2005 (UTC)

TOTM[edit]

We need a page on TOTM "Tailored Operational Training Meal"s. External link: http://www.dscp.dla.mil/subs/rations/programs/totm/totmabt.htm They've been some handed out here in New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. -- Infrogmation 02:16, 19 October 2005 (UTC)

Naming convention/Capitalization[edit]

Since the name of the organization serving these rations is the United States Army, shouldn't the article be moved to "United States Army ration" from "United States army ration"?

I think you're right. If there are no objections after a few days, I'd say move it. -- Infrogmation 22:36, 24 July 2006 (UTC)

Ho-Rah Bar[edit]

I removed the mention of the Ho-Rah bar as it is a component of some ration, it is not a ration itself. In the same way as "Canned peaches" are not listed as a separate ration. Sorry that I did not explain my rationale. Paul, in Saudi (talk) 12:53, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

In addition to being issued as a small ration, it's a component found in many MRE menus that has managed to gain enough notability for its own article. That's definately a related item worthy of a "see also". bahamut0013wordsdeeds 13:54, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
