While this jeep isn’t proof of how all USN jeeps looked during WW2, it certainly is interesting and might serve to stir some discussion. The original caption for this photo was “Marine glider at Page Field, Parris Island, S.C.”. It was taken in May 1942 at Parris Island and is from the Library of Congress collection. At first glance the photo may look neat but no big deal. The thing we notice first is that this is neither a grey or forest green jeep.

Below is a close up of the hood.
