Soldiers are the main reason why we are sleeping peacefully every night. Their importance is beyond explanation. But have you ever imagines how many difficulties they have to face in order to protect us? They not only have to protect us from vigilance and violence but with that, they also have to suffer a lot, just for us. That suffering includes not unstable sleep, nowhere to sleep, but the most important is the no food. In the war zone, it can be super difficult for anyone to get ingredients and prepare food there itself. Therefore, it gets difficult for them to eat a proper diet, and not eating a proper diet will result in loss of protein and other vitamins in their body which would definitely affect how they perform in the war zone. Thus, a new technique was invented in order to provide them with necessary vitamins, and that was MRE food.
