Synopsis
Author recounts an experience in ROTC when she and several other ROTC members were eating a MRE (Meal Ready-to-Eat), which have a notoriously long shelf life. The year was 1996, and the M&M candy in the meal had an Olympic logo on the bag, so they thought perhaps they had gotten lucky and gotten new MRE's since the 1996 Atlanta Olympics were going on at the time. A closer look, however, revealed the M&M package was commemorating the 1988 Seoul Olympics.
