Back in the day vets had lots of stuff! They also shipped stuff home!

It was not uncommon to see a crate full of stuff!

Now its unheard of! But back in the day!

My friend has a few ship home crates!

Think the post office would ship now!

I plan on visting my friend soon and take more pics of goodies!

But lets peek at stuff as it came home!

I took these pics yrs ago!

Swords as they were taken! 1 sword in bamboo container!

Thats how stuff got on the wall!

Stuff brought back! 1 item at a time or in a crate!

Back when I was real young a kid brought 2 fine Japanese swords over to show me! Carried them 2 blocks
back in the day!

Try walking down the street today doing that!

the 1960s! What a time!

I always wondered how all those Japanese rifles showed up in USA!
