Actually our National Guard runs more like the Army, and can be deployed overseas as I understand their conditions of service. In any event I have a few MREs myself, but since I am not likely to be mobile I tend to focus on more basic stuff I have to cook. So given that your in the National Guard on your island how hard do they train you? Also what is the extent of your AO is it just reserved to the island itself, or can you be deployed over seas? I got some of those Desert DPM shirts the UK pushes out do you by chance know what this means? I found some sort of velcro patch on one of my shirts that had a Crown, Wings, and the letters AD on it.
