Wanting to replace their outdated light vehicles the U.S. Military received three tenders. Bantam
Car Company was the initial winner but couldn’t meet demand so the job went to Willys-Overland
Motors. Willys was to take the best design features of the three submitted tenders and build a
standardized vehicle. Eventually in order to meet an even greater demand the Ford Motors
Company was asked to build a similar vehicle. During World War II there was a total of 647,870
Jeeps produced by the three companies; Willys-Overland produced 362,841 of them.


The 101st Airborne Division was activated on 16 August 1942 at Camp Claiborne, Louisiana.
Eventually moved to England and continued training until D-day, June 6, 1944. They were
pathfinders and became the first Americans to set foot in occupied France. They took part in
Operation “Market Garden”, Battle of the Bulge, they captured Hitler’s mountain retreat at
Berchtesgaden. On 30 November 1945, the Screaming Eagles were inactivated. Inactivated and
re-activated several times before taking part in the Vietnam War and many other operations
around the world.
