Enjoying MREs

Photojournalist Loren Ruark and I embedded with Oregon National Guard 41st Infantry Brigade Combat Team while they trained at Gowen Field in Idaho. Here we are during a rare moment of rest--grabbing a bite to eat, military style. That's right--we got to enjoy MREs. The soldiers told us they've gotten a lot better than they used to be. I had penne pasta--not bad.
