A Bite to Eat: Then and Now

The Arizona Historical Society invites you to join us for an informal talk and demonstration of U.S. Army field rations from frontier days in Arizona Territory to today in Afghanistan and Iraq. The program is in conjunction with the new exhibition "A Bite to Eat: Feeding the Troops."
