Last line in the national symbol markings (star) section listed above states no stars on ambulances.

Stars....correctly called the National Symbol:
The National Symbol, the 5 pointed star, is used on all the trucks except those of the US Marine Corps and are to be applied in the largest area of the:

Top of truck, 20 inch size for the hood
Both sides of truck, 14 inch size for the doors
Front of truck, 5 inch size for the front bumper
Rear of truck, 6 inch size for the tailgate

It is never applied to canvas or vinyl tops or covers. It also is not applied to any area where it could be covered up by canvas, windshields when folded, or where any spares or other items might hide it.
As to the orientation of the National Symbol, on horizontal surfaces, one point should point directly forward toward the front of the truck. For WWII vehicles, the star points the other direction, so one does see the National Symbol pointing toward the rear on the older trucks, but it is not correct for the Vietnam era and later vehicles. On vertical surfaces, one point always points straight up to the sky. One may see WWII vehicles with the National Symbol in a circle. This is an invasion marking and is never correct for the M715 family. Note that ambulances, like the M725, would never have the National Symbol.
