Default M715 lettering

As a past veteran of Hq. Co, CEIA from Fort Huachuca, does anyone know the proper lettering for m715 from there. I am restoring one to use in parades and would like to pay Tribute to my old company by letting it as such

If you could help us out with what CEIA is and what unit it's part of, I'm sure I could help you figure out the markings. From my decal website,
Quote:
Unit Markings:

These are the number/letter markings found on the front and rear bumpers of the trucks. The US Marine Corps did not use these markings. These markings were required to be in the largest practical size but not over 4 inches in height. Any symbols used outside the normal letters and numbers were to be as close to the same size as the lettering. Initially these were to be of paint that could be removed with gasoline or removable vinyl letters.

Reading such markings from left to right on a front bumper would tell us a lot about the vehicles assignment, to include:

1. The Major Command it is assigned to
2. The Intermediate Command it is assigned to
3. The Unit or Activity it is assigned to
4. The vehicle number for convoy purposes, aka: Order of March
You can read about all the markings on the about page on my site, http://www.deltateamdecals.com/about...-markings.html
