The Navy allowed me to ship 2 butterfly knifes back to the states,but they had to be inclosed in a glass displaly case.I forgot what ever happened to them.

I had purchased a cool butterfly knife  in Subic City that Customs took from my locker when I was in Hawaii (1978) !!!

I remember those little road side stands on base that sold all kinds of wicked native weapons that included an assortment of swords and knives.  And blow guns to boot!  Even during those days having these weapons on base was illegal if I remember.  Yet they were there, sold,  and we bought them.  We always just hung them on the walls of our barracks cubicles.  And they were left behind when we were transfered, or went home.   Anybody ever keep theirs?

Not always transit,they put us on one when the ship was in the shipyard in overhaul,beleave me it was cleaner and less noise!!

Thanks guys.  I have to assume that a barracks barge is for personnel that are in a transient mode.  Do you still have to attend muster and be back on board by 2300 hrs, or what ever?  What are your duties on a barracks barge anyway?
