IT’S STILL CHOW

SHARE IT’S STILL CHOW

The U.S. armed forces include people of many creeds, but military chow has long been a one-menu-fits-all affair. Henceforth, however, the services' prepackaged meals, known as MREs, will be multicultural.

Each case of MREs will now include one or two Multifaith Meals, developed according to Jewish and Muslim dietary laws. This removes a large enlistment block to the devout of both faiths. Some Multifaith Meals even contain a bag of chips. Kosher Fritos? Only in America.The services deserve praise for diversifying their cuisine, with one exception. The enemy's diet will continue to consist primarily of lead.
