f. MRE and Ration Transfers.
At the end of field training, transfer
all loose MRE meals and residual T-Ration pans to another field kitchen or
to the supporting garrison dining facility. When a lack of transportation
precludes the return to the home station, contact the major Army command
(MACOM) for disposition instructions. Apply the procedures discussed in the
following subparagraphs when you transfer loose residual items.
(1) Loose Leftover T Rations. Plan for personnel to transfer loose
leftover T-Ration pans to another field kitchen.
Transfer only those T-
Ration pans that have never been heated or have been heated only once. They
can transfer T Rations to the home station garrison dining facility account.
Transfer T Rations at no cost to the dining facility. List pans by the type
of the menu item (vegetable, starch, dessert).
(2) Loose Individual MREs.
Plan for personnel to transfer loose
individual MREs to another field kitchen, or they may transfer them to the
home station dining facility account.
