National Museum of the USAF Restoration: M151A1 CCT Jeep (Vietnam)



Dear USAF Combat Control Community

Greetings on behalf of the National Museum of the United States Air Force. We are nearing the end of our restoration and are about ready to paint and mark our M151A1 CCT Jeep with MRC-108 Radio. Before this artifact can be placed on exhibit to tell the story of AF CCTs in Vietnam we need to make sure that we have access to the best information to guarantee these markings will be correct representations of the vehicles in actual service.

If possible, would your membership please review their personal collections for imagery (B&W or color) of these vehicles in use in Southeast Asia. Reliable markings information is limited, and we need to confirm the markings for accuracy. We would very much appreciate any assistance you can provide. Your timely assistance is requested as we wish to get this vehicle in place and on exhibit for our continuing Southeast Asia War Commemoration.

We sincerely appreciate any assistance you can provide. If you have any questions or comments please contact me. Have a great day!
