The 13 funniest military memes this week — MRE edition

This week’s meme roundup is dedicated to fine military cuisine. You know, the nutrient rich, cardboard textured, grownup Lunchables the military feeds you out in the field. Yes, that’s right, MREs.

Some troops like MREs, but most will probably identify with this meme:

Recruiters are known for leaving out a thing or two.
