    I looked up DRMO because I've never heard of such a thing, but it sounds like something that should've been around from the beginning. That would've helped a LOT! (You know, back in the day.......) What's WIR?

    @3522... I don't know what it actually stands for... but it's a process for dealing with vehicles that are considered beyond repair...

    @vicdees... yeah they still use MIMMS to date, they are only now working on the GCSS-MC and it's getting tested in one of the three groups... which I won't mention on the internet.

    MIMMS was bought from Sears and Roebuck a looooong time ago.

    DRMO yard, the pick a part of the Corps! I remember getting sent to the Camp Pen one and they had the old jeeps stacked up, hundreds of them. I tried to talk the civ. worker to let me buy one get one with no avail. That would have been pretty cool.

    On the trip to Idaho to pick up a motorcycle, I stopped at this place: http://www.idahomotorpool.com/ and had a look around. Lots of deuce-an-a-halfs, an 800 series wrecker, even a GamaGoat! They had a HMMWV that still had USMC markings on it! And dumbass me with no camera! The old guy there said that they are a pain to work on.

    Neat... What were the GammaGoats used for? Trailer hauling? They were before my time, I have never seen one in action.

    The Gama Goat was a six-wheel-drive semi-amphibious off-road vehicle originally developed for use by the US Military for the war in Vietnam. It was famous for an articulated body, which allowed it to travel over exceptionally rough terrain and for a unique four wheel steering arrangement with the front and rear wheels turning in opposite directions.
    The nickname came from two sources, "Gama" from the name of the inventor of its powered articulated joint, Roger Gamount, and "Goat" for its mountain goat-like off-road ability. Its military designation was M561, 6x6 tactical 1.5 ton truck. There was also an ambulance version known as the M792.

    I don't know if they had any specific purpose, but they did have an ambulance variant. Google will find you a bunch of stuff if you're interested, but this'll get you started: http://www.muttmotorpool.com/GamaGoat.html
