There are tons of MBs in this.  Great little film.

Jeep-Maniasis (a generally fatal parasitic disease caused by some species of Jeep in the Willys family).

Peen it over, file to a feather edge, fill the cracks with sh**, and paint.

No kidding combat.  I am just a youngun by far (I am 40), but I come from a family of men that served in WWII, two uncles, and a father who was in the Army during Korea.  I was born REALLY late into my family.  I have old home videos of the era we just watched on here, and I grew up with family members in an atmosphere quite different than most of those my age.  And I grew up in the country here in Oklahoma.  

Needless to say, I am appalled at what has happened to our country.  It's a broad statement, and I am kind of hijacking the thread a bit by discussing this, but I was thinking the same thing as I watched this clip.  Not because I lived during that time of course, but I would be lying if I said I didn't know a bit about that time in the stories I have heard and knowing the people that I have had the pleasure of knowing in my youth. And I think that my love for the old Jeeps stems from this somewhat.  A yearning to reconnect to a simpler, happier, and much more proud era for our nation. 

But most of all, I miss those people in my life that were a part of that.  Thanks for the film clip.
