Trucks and Car

The US military used a number of different kinds of pick up truck type vehicles since long before WWII. Here is one from the 1960s that was based on a commercial Jeep chassis. This one is from the US Navy, but I have seen many of them being used by the US Army.

Here is a WWII era version of the pick up truck.

This weapons carrier is unusual as it has an enclosed cab. Good in cold weather.

In WWII there was hardly a vehicle type that did not see service. Cars were used to transport staff officers around and even used as taxis on large bases.

Many of them had the star on the rear door, I like the front door star version better. It looks more balanced.
