Veterans Memorial Museum WILLYS JEEP
........N. Walker, May 7, 2005
Jeep is marked up to recall Bill Mauldin's famous WW2 cartoon series. The series featured the combat GI pair "Willy & Joe". Through the cartoons, the American public was humorously given a glimpse of unglamouous aspects of life of the common foot soldier in war. The cartoon has Willy being forced to dispatch his faithful broken jeep with his hand gun. Analogous to shooting your faithful horse with an unrecoverable broken leg.
