    I can clearly remeber riding in a deuce staeside at Camp Bullis TX in 1976 in strata blue . Sac kept blue stateside for well into the eighties , Not all dueces had tactical uses and so not all were painted green

    Gave up on trying to find a tower signal sticker so designed one that sort of looks like I remember them. Should have them from the decal outfit in a couple of weeks or so. The cost was about ZIP so no charge PB. Send me a PM with your mailing addy.

    PB let me know if you want a couple for your stuff.

    Will get one out to you when they arrive. Good job on the jeep. I have long wondered where the two we had at the Benning TACP in 64-65 went. Both M38A1s were procured off of a Marine contract and were VC-104 outfitted. (with MRC 108 type radios etc.). One was Strata blue and the other was Marine OD. Both had the stickers on the dash. All troops assigned had fight line badges so when we would deploy to a location that took us through a AFB we could drive the jeeps on/off the flight line. So the stickers were required then as they are now on AF vehicles using the flight line. When I checked with the guy at Ellsworth AFB about seeing if he had one of the old stickers he told me he did not and the current stickers were about 10 inches wide (a 2017 issue sticker) and that it was a problem trying to figure out where to locate them in some of the vehicles.

    Thanks Jeff for the picture. I will put my decal at the same location when it comes. Let me know if you want a decal for your AF truck when they come. Also let me know in a PM your mail address.

    Got the tower signals decal Friday and here is a pic of one mounted on the truck. As mentioned it is not exactly like the one that Jeff posted (the correct one) but was the best I could come up with using my limited skills cutting/pasting/etc. of stuff already on the net.

    PB tried to send a pic to you on a PM but system would not let me post a pic so here is the pic.
