Were vietnam vets allowed to bring back foregin firearms from the war? While in Operation Iraqi Freedom we were strictly forbidden from bringing home any Iraqi guns or even ammo. If I remember correctly Iraqi bayonets and combat knives were not allowed either. And I do remember trying to bring back some 30rd AK mags and having them confiscated before we left the country.
Oh wait, I do remember hearing unit comanders could bring weapons back if they wanted to use them as mementos in a unit shrine or for something they could display in the unit cp. Yeah that's right, I bet Kerry could have pulled something like that off since he was an O.
However, if it's full auto he would be in violation, unless he has a class III license.
