JEEP again

In the 65-68 time frame and when I came back in in 80, the troops apparently
hadn't heard that "M-151 quarter ton trucks" weren't to be called "jeeps"
and called them that, anyway.

Neither have I. And I was in the military in the early '60's, when the
real jeep was being replaced by another, not-particularly-similar
vehicle built by Ford. At the time, the Stars & Stripes, The Army
Times, and other semi-official publications available to the troops
made it clear that the appellation, _jeep_, was not going to be
transferred to this new vehicle.
