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)


We need a page on TOTM "Tailored Operational Training Meal"s. External link: 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)

What are the exact units being used in the article when "oz." is mentioned? Are they just ounces, or are they sometimes fluid ounces? If the latter, are there any instances of some being US customary fluid ounces and others being imperial fluid ounces? I ask because some of the measurements refer to liquids while others refer to solids, and some of them are from dates in which imperial fluid ounces may well have been used. Clarification would be much appreciated, so that I can begin adding {{convert}} templates. ―Nøkkenbuer (talkcontribs) 13:23, 1 March 2017 (UTC)
