Don't foget the M-151's were not taken out of service (in the Corps) until 1989. So, any Uniform up until that time is "period correct".

The same can be said for the Army National Guard.

Dang it just occured to me....The M-151's were in Service for almost 30 years. I think the Hummer might break that record.

the Corps still has some m-151's in service, and the occasional one still turns up on GL (about 5 this year that i noticed) coming out of the army.... The clock is still ticking on total service time, 1959 to date !

Are they still using them in the FAV roll? Thought they finally phased them out a couple of years ago...

I think it was Growler they went to for the mutt replacement, but the cost was ridiculous....

Guys....Guys...Guys...... Let's stay focused here. 1978-1980. God knows I appreciate all of your service to our country, but let's narrow down the perimeter here for a moment.

AND, one of my assignments at the Sheriff's Office is the DRMO screener/POC. Just a few days ago, 2 Mighty-Mites came up on the screen!! I am willing to bet those were in the back of a warehouse somewhere, with a ton of crap piled on top of them, and someone finally discovered two vehicles underneath it all.

threads have a tendency to wander a bit here, probably cause we're all getting to the age our minds wander too....lol

It is interesting to observe how threads will wonder but it is also the nature of the beast. Think Bill's question was answered in the first two pages of this thread.
