An Excerpt By Robert C. Snyder
Veterans endure many hardships. Often, they live in tents in remote woodland areas or open deserts.
Some parachute from the sky, drive and operate tanks, or set up artillery cannons.
They often eat food sealed in a plastic pouch called a field ration or Meal, Ready-to-Eat (MRE). This food tastes kind of like a cafeteria lunch, but is usually eaten cold from the pouch instead of hot on a plate.
Author’s Note: Veteran’s Day is a wonderful holiday for citizens to recognize the brave men and women who keep us free!
