Veterans Day is a holiday in the United States that honors those who have served in our armed forces, both past and present. For that reason I'm featuring a military vehicle. And not just any military vehicle, but one of the workhorses of the modern military, the AM General HMMWV, or Humvee.
This one looks like it saw service with the U.S. Marine Corps. I suspect it was decommissioned and possibly purchased from the surplus motor pool at Camp Parks Reserve Training Area in nearby Dublin. I'm pretty sure I've seen the truck used in the Danville 4th of July parade at least once. The "A Whole Can of Whoopass!" stencil is pretty distinctive and not likely to be found on any other Humvee. A past M-1044 owner on military vehicle forum G503.com calls the M-1044 "very rare" and says "less than 30" are in private hands nationwide. The model year I have listed is a guess, as I can only find photo examples of 1986 through 1987 M-1044s. Actively commissioned Humvees still drive through my area in convoys from time to time, but a privately owned one is quite the rare sight.
