American Patrol
One of the most recognizable vehicles from World War II, the M3 Half Track was adopted for a wide variety of roles. Fitted with a quad .50 caliber machine gun mount, the vehicle was known as the M16 Multiple Gun Motor Carriage. The Half Track is accompanied by another iconic vehicle, the GMC CCKW 6X6 truck known as the "Deuce And A Half". This print depicts a patrol featuring both vehicles  in the European Theater of Operations during the winter of 1944. The painting is used as the cover piece for the Military Issue Holiday Catalog in 2013.
