Jeep Purple Heart
Posted by goldhammer on Saturday, March 10, 2018 11:07 AM

Heard about this last night for the first time.

"Old Faithful" was the first Jeep on Guadalcanal, and was wounded during a shelling by a Japanese battleship.  Was awarded the Purple Heart in 1944.

Supposedly retired to the base at Quantico, VA.

Thought some might be interested, maybe even do one.
