d. Remote Feeding.
To provide hot food to soldiers at remote sites
(radar sites and small signal sites), you require intensive management. You
may consider various methods for remote feeding.
Battalions may send hot
meals forward to remote units using the remote meal carriers or the
insulated food containers.
When this arrangement is not feasible, the
battalion may attach a KCLFF or an MKT and cooks to the remote unit to
prepare hot meals. Remember that the only hot meal that you can cook with a
KCLFF is the T Ration.
Depending on the following factors,
the remote unit may be attached
administratively for rations to the
nearest unit that is capable of

e. Logistics Package Feeding to Forward Task Force. Another method of
subsistence distribution to units that are deployed in forward areas is to
send food forward by way of the logistics package (LOGPAC). If you use the
LOGPAC method, organize the resupply elements in the battalion field trains
and move them forward daily for routine resupply. Use LOGPACs to resupply
light and heavy forces. The LOGPAC moves along the main supply route (MSR)
to the logistics resupply point (LRP).
From the LRP, the company first
sergeant controls the LOGPAC and conducts the resupply. Normally, the unit
supply truck contains the hot tray packs and the MREs.
However, you may
have to plan special procedures for resupply. For example, a scout platoon
may have each truck pull off line individually and move to the prepositioned
Alternatively, each truck may be resupplied as the platoon
repositions between missions. Figure 1-4 shows the LOGPAC method of feeding
soldiers at forward locations.
