Can anyone confirm? I assume that the 24th Mechanized Infantry was in MERDC in the mid 80s.

Mid 80s CARC paint was available, with OD Green usually the only color available. So, most vehicles were a solid coat of green.

If the vehicles were M60/113 it would have been MERDC. IF M1/M2 then forest green. Just depends on when they modernized.

The brigade's vehicles that went to Exercise Bright Star in '83 were sporting grey desert MERDC, at least the ones that I saw.
