#7 | Posted by snoofy Cluster bomblets look nothing like a MRE. I never saw any other type of food dropped from the air for civilians. The vast majority of food distributed was bulk stuff from trucks. My son was there day one, and for two more tours, I was there for two. I saw plenty of duds, and had to clear a few, especially in the early days. Generally we didn't touch the things, we placed a stick of C4 close and let that explosion detonate them. They are small, maybe a quarter the size of Campbell's soup can with a ribbon on one end and a black inverted cone on the other. No label, no seam, they look like what they are, a very small bomb.
