OCONUS - July 27, 2021- Hello ALL, I cannot put into words how much your organization boosted the morale of my team at an austere location. We are at a place where we are short on normal food supply and try not to eat loads of MREs. The contents of care package boxes were just amazing! From the protein shakes to the Met-Rx bars, then the jerky and all the canned goods. Those Mountain House meals sustained this team for months! It is so comforting to receive handwritten notes, letters and artwork. Many of them still hang around in rooms and common areas. Those custom touches really help us feel the support of great Americans like you. You have made life easier, happier and much more nutritious and flavorful! Thank you so so much for all that you’ve done to support us and many other Troops abroad! I appreciate what you do. I can’t explain the immense pride and joy it brings when we have your support.

COLCHESTER, Vt. September 28, 2021 – Shortly after the U.S. Army adopted the M17 service pistol in 2017 for active duty military troops and guard, new individual weapons qualifications required the use of dummy, drilled, inert (DDI) practice rounds before live-fire qualification - many of which jammed.
In November 2020, while helping snipers from 3rd Battalion, 172nd Infantry (Mountain), prepare for a national competition, Vermont Army National Guard Warrant Officer 3 Cara Krauss, state ammunition manager, noticed that DDI rounds failed to extract. The pistol upper receivers became inoperable "and could only be pushed back by applying force to the front of the pistol," Knauss said.
