SOCK Ration


Prior to the Counter Insurgency Support Office (CISO) PIR Ration the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) created a portable food packet that were issued in seal foil pouch. Each packet contained some form of a meat product, a snack, two instant coffee packets, two sugars, salt, and a flavoring powder. The meals were placed in wool tube and termed Sock Rations by the veterans. I am uncertain just how many menus there were.
