Geez... I grew up in PA and never found stuff like this 40 years ago. All I can figure is with WWII vets pushing into their 80's and 90's more of them (or their families) are letting go of stuff. Nice hunting. Just make sure all the ordnance is dewat... some of those vets were not too careful about what they brought back.
