Another question that has got my curiosity going. It's been years now since my Dad passed away, but I seem to remember him saying that he had really wanted to keep some of his Army-issue clothes, but that they were all required to turn them in at war's end and discharge. Which, if true, makes me wonder how so much stuff survives. Were some branches allowed to keep things while others were not? Is my memory entirely fried? Could a service man (or woman) from WWII take their uniforms, shoes, leather jackets, etc., home with them after being discharged?
