I received this picture from a friend who's trying to identify the bumperette markings. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

1st Army, 2nd Armored Division, 67th Armored (Battalion?) 5th vehicle of Delta Company.

67th Armored was a regiment. It used to be 67th Infantry Regiment (Medium), meaning medium tanks, and on 15 July 1940 was redesignated 67th Armored Regiment (Medium) when it was assigned to 2nd Armored Division. On 1 January 42 they dropped the "(Medium)." Fought in North Africa, Sicily, landed Normandy 11 June 44, ended up in Heere, Germany.

Armored battalions were called Tank Battalions and there was no 67th Tank Battalion during WWII.

Above info from the gonzo book "Order of Battle - US Army World War II"

Wikipedia, for what that's worth, says during postwar reorganization a 67th Tank Battalion was created in 1948 from other units.

Yes Dog Company until 1956 when the "Able-Baker" phonetic alphabet went through changes and D became Delta.
