Default Check your pockets...

Two questions...

1. Do you have one of these?
2. Do you know what it's for?

Extra credit...

Did you buy it or was it issued to you?

Yep. Sure do. There were no MRE's in the 60's.

Rumor was it was named a 38 P for the 38 punctures required to open a C-Ration can.

I saw this over on Facebook. Didn't recognize it for a while, but it finally dawned on me what it was. Never was issued one, but did have one in my frame pack when I was a kid.
