    i wondered the same thing...

    but after i was there i realized how real seeing the shoes and knowing that those shoes were filled by people in WAR. if only those shoes could talk....those people were wearing those shoes when they were fighting, dying and dead...

    you know what they say...you can tell alot about a person by their shoes...not all those boots where the same style..some were old and worn out...some were brand new...sad to think that some troops got new shoes before they got deployed and the shoes looked that polished and new when they got killed.

    the reason why they are so clean because most of them are not the boots they were wearing........
    the military gives all the personel effects to the family....
