Chevrolet 1 1/2 ton 4x4 Cargo Truck, Fort Sheridan, IL, circa 1941.
Infantry supported by an M4 Sherman medium tank move forward on Leyte, Philippines, circa October 1944.
Second-echelon maintenance of USMC tactical vehicles in the Panama Canal Zone, such as installing repair parts and components, on vehicles like this M-923 Truck, Cargo 5-ton 6x6, is performed by mechanics who deploy with the rifle company, Panama, circa 1999.
M3 37mm anti-tank gun and crew, 1941. This light artillery was woefully inadequate against newer tanks that would be faced in WWII from the Germans. The 37mm AT was quickly phased out as the war progressed. The then-new jeep was often the prime mover for this piece.
Generator and M416 trailer for the AN/MRC-108 Communication System on display in the Southeast Asia War Gallery at the National Museum of the US Air Force, Dayton, OH.  M151A1 jeep in upper right background.
Jeeps being processed for overseas shipment and amphibious driving, Hampton Roads Port of Embarkation, 11 May 1943.

Military Image Search Engines

Some have a separate video search feature as well, in addition to sites that specialize in video like YouTube. Check the home page for each of them and look for a link to "images" or "video" and try a test search for HMMWV or army jeep. In addition, Web Places has a specialized search engine for clip art which will help you find alternatives on the web for military graphics.
