I can only assume that the new moon represents a C for C rations. All I know is I never want to eat another one as long as I live.
IMPROVING ANSWER: Could it be that this "red Crescent" symbol means that the meal is OK for observant Muslims to eat? The Red Crescent is like the Red Cross for the Muslim world. Military C-rations are often given to needy civilians in times of disaster, war, etc
It DEFINITELY does NOT mean that the meal is halal (complies with dietary rules of Islam) nor that it is Kosher- many of the meals are not. And I would note that C Rations were replaced by the MRE about 15 years ago. The crescent moon symbol is simply the symbol used for all military rations, just as there is a symbol for ammunition, a symbol for medical supplies, and a symbol for POL (petrol)
The moon can get as hot as 100° C at noon

No. The moon has no atmosphere and very little internal heating. All the sunlight falling on the moon is radiated out into space. An astronaut could walk from +100 C to -100 C in one footstep if he went from sun into shade.
When it is the night it can be -160degrees C and 100 degrees C when it is day
A moon ( ITS NOT MOON ITS "CRESCENT" it means "HILAL" i.e "new moon" c-shaped) and a star, which are both on the Pakistani flag.
A crescent is something that is "c" shaped. For example, the moon when it is a sliver is "crescent shaped."It's the figure bounded by a semicircle and an arc of a larger circle. The most familiar crescent is the Moon, when it's partially lit by the Sun (as viewed from Earth). A frequent error in drawing a crescent is making the arc of a smaller circle.
Old relatives always said to me: if it's a C for coming, then it's going.So the moon's phase depends if it looks like a C: which would mean last quarter (going).A new moon will appear as a ) in its first quarter (coming).Note that the time of day has no bearing on the shape of the visible moon.
The story goes: You have to be as tough as John Wayne to be able to eat the c ration crackers.
If you were lucky you would get k ration. They were an important source of food for WWII soldiers. A K ration was also a pocket ration for paratroopers .... but large, pockets that were designed to be able to hold a k ration box. A C ration is an already canned food sent in to the soldiers. If you got or had none of those you had to eat a German soldier. To finish off you would not get to much food to eat during World War 2.
The C-Ration can opener is called a P-38. It is a small flat piece of metal with a blade that folds out 90 degrees. The blade is pushed into the can and the plate worked up and down on the rim of the can to work it around the top. See related link below for a picture of the P-38 can opener:
The letter "C" doesn't actually stand for anything. Fresh food was given an "A" nomenclature (A-ration). Packaged but unprepared food was given a "B" nomenclauture (B-ration). C-rations designated prepackaged, prepared foods which were ready for consumption upon opening. The survival rations were given a "D" or "K" nomenclature.
Simply stand in front of the shipping box press C to get out your item and press A to drop it into the shipping box.
Crescent means "C" like.
There are two phases of the moon that appear to be a half disk: the first quarter and the third quarter. The entire cycle of moon phases takes about 28 days (27.3217 days). Counting the day of a new moon as the first day, then the phases in order are: • waxing crescent • first quarter (a half lit moon resembling the letter "D") at end of week one • waxing gibbous • full at end of week two • waning gibbous • third quarter (a half lit moon resembling the letter "C") at end of week three • waning crescent • and back to the new moon, completing the cycle after week four
You pronounce it CRESS-sent. The second "c" is silent.
C Moon was created on 1972-12-01.
