Garrison rations are foods that are served to military personnel when they are stationed at a location. This term is mostly used with respect to historic militaries.
Field rations are a canned or pre-packaged meal, easily prepared and eaten, transported by military troops on the battlefield. They are designed for minimal preparation in the field, using canned, pre-cooked or freeze-dried foods, powdered beverage mixes and concentrated food bars, as well as for long shelf life.
