Hello forum.
Is there any way to know a little bit of the story of a M1078? I know only the SN: AT6409BCJF, it's a M1078, maybe from North/South Carolina, but I don't know it exactly...

Maybe someone know where can I get some info in whith company was used etc...

Thanks and regards from Italy!

Not too easy... and I don't think the serial number will help too much. Look for the unit numbers on the truck. They are on the front and back of the truck. I was fortunate to have a little bit of info on my truck. It form the Washington National Guard. It was in Kuwait and was shipped back to the Washington. There's a shipping label and I can see the unit number on the front of the truck. There maybe some more history but will have to do some sanding to see if I can see older unit numbers.

You can see the unit number in this picture. It's 2-146FA the 2-146th Field Artillery Regiment. The Truck/bumper number is B-66

Google the unit marking as they are painted on the bumper, should take you to the unit or base website.
I have had good success with this approach.

Thank you everyone! Need to sand a little bit because the unit markers are overpainted...

Thanks a lot!
