Specific History

During Operation Enduring Freedom, Humanitarian Daily Rations (HDRs) were dropped from US C-17 cargo planes. Each package contained a complete day's food supply of 2200 calories. The food contents of the package varied, but never contained any meat products. The text on the outside of the bright yellow package translates to "Halal", which indicates the food is permitted under Islamic law.
