Restoring a MUTT and while stripping the paint, found a "Yellow Bat" painted on the original 1st layer of paint. Does anyone have any information on what this emblem was for? Or what unit it was used by and when?

Originally, the plan was to restore it with markings honoring the previous owner. He was a medic in Viet Nam and had put his old unit markings on it. In one of the pictures on the information web page posted earlier, there is a jeep shown with a Serial/Hood number of 2P 7000. This jeep's serial number is 2P 7020. That combined with the bat is full proof that the jeep was used in Nam by that unit. So now,,,,,,,,, I'm going to restore it with 101st Markings, keep the bat, and put my friend's name on the windshield. That way we still honor him as well.
