The US military is working to ensure that the troops can always enjoy the comforts of home with a specialty pizza that stays edible for three years. According to military research, pizza is the most requested food item by soldiers in the field. As a result, the military has come up with a way to make the iconic Italian dish available at all times.
For the first time, troops on the ground can now enjoy a hot slice of pizza known as 'MRE #37.' MRE refers to 'Meal, Ready-to-Eat,' which is military jargon for prepackaged field rations. Like other rations, MRE is designed to stay edible for up to three years even after sitting at room temperature.
While the idea of a lukewarm slice of pizza may not seem all that appealing, to men and women in the military the dish serves as a comforting taste of home.
