Chips, candy, etc... brought from home (or bought at that last gas stop).
It is an Army term, at least that's where I got it from. It refered to food
stuffs not from the supply system.
This stuff, unlike the patrol's food for the weekend, winds up in the
tents. The result is that bugs are attracted, tent floors get sticky or
oily. It can get to be a real maintenance nightmare.
