My apologies for my absence my fellow Soldiers & Officers. I've been away at OCS (prior 11B2P) and getting ready to roll out to IBOLC, so pretty much I"m working, working out, and sleeping (for recovery) as prep for IBOLC.
I hope everyone had a great 4th of July, stayed safe and all that. For those that are deployed, I did have a beer in your honor on the 4th.
We used the TB, more or less as local commands always have their .02
Stolen from Wiki:
Army Technical Bulletin 43-0209, Color, Marking, and Camouflage Painting of Military Vehicles, Construction Equipment and Materials Handling Equipment, standardizes how vehicle bumper numbers are applied. The markings are divided into four positions. Positions 1 and 2 are applied on the left, while positions 3 and 4 are applied on the right. The positions identify
The major command, organization or activity the equipment is associated with;
The intermediate organization or activity;
The unit that operates and maintains the vehicle; and
The specific vehicle number (often associated with the order of march).
Anything beyond this policy such as assigning a specific number against a specific unit position is a matter of unit standard operating procedure. However, the number six has traditionally been associated with the commander of the element. For example, a Humvee assigned to the commander of Charlie Company would be designated "C06," while the 1st Platoon, Charlie Company's command vehicle would be "C16," 2nd Platoon would be "C26," etc.
In my Service Support / Combat Support units we didn't really follow the "commander = vehicle 6" rule, and typically numbered by position on the MTOE (Table of Organizational Equipment).
Oh and put me down for bumper number DS-3, in memory of the finest M35A2 (Deuce and a Half) to serve in SWA.

I am a 9-year Army veteran. Started with 3 yrs in the NG, deployed to Kosovo. Switched to Regular Army and did 6 years, deployed to Iraq. ETSed last year, currently working in Afghanistan as a contractor. Giving serious consideration to signing up for NG OCS when I get back in a couple months.
Hope I can be included here! If so, I'll try to come up with a clever bumper number. I'm trying to remember the serial that was stamped on the doors of my MRAP in Iraq. Not a bumper but might be kinda cool stenciled on the WJ somewhere as a tribute.
Was in 90- 95 16s stinger team chief. Played in the sand the first time in Desert Storm. Just bought my first jeep bone stock. 94 YJ. Bumper number is B431 after the baddest M113 APC in ODS and Germany.
