I see thse pop up here, but in 22+ years in active service I can't say I've ever seen one in real life. And they're not exactly something you'd find in a soldier's barracks...

 

Was there a specific period in which these were popular, or some specific use for them? Aside from putting around pillows, of course...

I agree, they have their own level of uniqueness. I have been trying to collect other "sweetheart" items related to the 10 Mt. Div. and Camp Hale, there are some interesting pieces out there besides pillow cases.
