This happened to my brother when he returned from Vietnam. All his worldly possessions including a BMW R60 motorcycle were sold off. Fort Irwin was shuttered while he was overseas and all the troops stuff being stored by a local storage company disappeared when the company closed.
He arrived at the airport in Miami and we led him to the parking lot where our grandfather was waiting with a brand new Ducati.
Whoa, Ducati! Outfriggingstanding.
I never owned anything more than I could pack in my duffle and awol bag.
