We'd take the case of c-rats and dump them upside down (label side down) and take turns picking your meals thinking that this was a fair way to distribute the meals. That is until one of the guys pointed out that the cases of c-rations were always packed in the same order. He shared that info after he high graded his meals for a long time since he would memorize the order and knew where to grab.

Seen some nasty fistfights over this very thing.

Green ham and Lima beans makes a man right mean and nasty after several days.
You may find me dead in a ditch one day, on my knees, but I will be up to my waist in spent rifle brass.

It ain't the firearms they are wanting to be rid of, its you!
