CAFFEIN FIENDS – SOLDIERS OF THE 5TH INFANTRY DIVISION COMPLAIN ABOUT CHANGES TO ARMY K RATIONS



Dear YANK:

Who slipped the boullion in the breakfast ration?

81-mm. mortarmen, 30-cal. machine gunners and every rifleman in the Fifth Infantry Division has a bone to pick with the workers in K ration plants.

We can take the weather and sleeping out in the open, and we don’t mind eating those enticing cold K rations three times a day. But, please, at least let us get coffee and not boullion; ham and eggs and not corn pork loaf in the breakfast rations.

–Caffein Fiends, Fifth Inf. Division
