Five years. Armed Forces Leave Bonds matured five years after the date of issue and ceased earning interest at that time. While they initially had to be held to maturity, the law was changed in 1947 to allow them to be cashed prior to maturity. There is a collector market for these items. There may be greater collector value than redemption value.
