    bought some Cuban cigars in Japan while he was in the Navy.  He returned to the United States in uniform and with the cigars in their original box.  Rather than try to hide anything, he brazenly declared the cigars, and their country of origin, on his declaration.  In his telling of the story, the customs agent stared at him, open-mouthed, saying "you know these are illegal, don't you?"  He nodded.  Maybe it was the Navy uniform, but the agent let him keep the cigars.  I smoked one myself.
