    I would love to restore her to her original assigned branch of service upon her arrival in the Korean War. Is there anyway I can trace this information? Thank you

    Do you believe that my Jeep was a USMC Variant? The veteran responsible for her markings passed away so obtaining any history of her from him is lost. Wondering if there is a way to research this with my Jeep.

    There was a link from yesterdays post that covered some of the unique USMC additions and some reasons for the difficulty of tracking down the history of your Jeep. The main one to look for is the undercoating sprayed under the body. Since the Marines were based next to the oceans, they required the coatings to prevent rust.

    They'll be Octogenarians, so maybe chatting up the local VFW could locate a person with general knowledge about Jeeps used during the time?
