Another Military Truck on the Street for ID

Recommended Posts

The truck I saw on the street a few weeks back took about 3 seconds for you experts to ID.  I spotted this one over the weekend and thought I'd toss it out here for an ID in case anyone needs something to occupy the brain a little bit.  

Enjoy!

Great. Thanks. It looked like a good old work horse to me. But it has a historic vehicle plate on the back, so was wondering if it was anything unusual or not.  Besides the fact that it has been sitting on a residential street for at least a month now.

I don't think that camo pattern is unique to the marines.  We had that patter (or it's near twin) in the Army in the late-70s and into the 80s.

It's an M35A1, Reo is the parent firm but also made by others.

It's hard to tell from my lousy photo, but the tailgate is marked US Air Force. 

Thanks for all the comments!

"I have only two men out of my company and 20 out of some other company. We need support, but it is almost suicide to try to get it here as we are swept by machine gun fire and constant barrage is on us. I have no one on my left and only a few on my right. I will hold." (Message sent by 1st Lt. Clifton B. Cates. USMC, 96th Co., Soissons, 19 July 1918 - later 19th Commandant of the Marine Corps 1948-1952)
