106 mm Ammo Box

Postby bbontemps » Tue Mar 29, 2016 9:55 am

On a recent trip to the Unclaimed Freight Store in Peoria, IL, I spotted a stack of familiar looking wood boxes. After checking them out, I saw they were ammo boxes for 106 mm rounds. 48 years ago today, those of us on the Minehune crew were unloading rounds from boxes like these into our APC as we made our way through the central highlands of Vietnam, trying to keep up with our leader's motto of "a gook a day and a firefight a week."
The boxes were $9.99 each, so I had to buy one. I'm now waiting for my wife to find a creative way to repurpose it.
