Halftrack History

I was going to write up the history of various models of halftracks, but there are enough sites out there with that information.  So I am going to post historic images that I have found.  I will try to give as much information about the picture as I can.

Attached to the 2nd Infantry Div, note the Indian Head patch on the bumper.

This one has an interesting field modification where they added what looks like a ring mount from a duece and a half.

These halftracks have pedestals mounted on the hood. There is also one with a crane on the front.
