in the Netherlands Marine Corps from 1953 to 1969. They were a part of
the Mutual Defense Assistance Program. Apparently 5 of them returned
to the US
Military Advisory Assistance Group in the Netherlands.

assigned to vehicle serial number CJV-35 10505. The
distinctive front tow hooks, lift rings, headlight guards, combat

illustrated in CJV-35/U Manuals.
