Vietnam War favorite

As I recall (and it’s been 42 years) this little item from can 4 was the most popular C-ration. It’s the fruitcake. When you got one of these you felt blessed by the gods.

For more C-ration memories (if you’re so inclined) go here. Not only a photo of the famous P-38 (not the WW2 fighter but the 1969 can opener) but also the small four-packs of Marlboros and matches from those pre-PC days.
