Trucks, a wrecker and jeeps sit loaded on flatcars at Camp Polk, Louisiana.  The vehicles were sent west to California and for shipment to the Philippines.  In an attempt to equip the 192nd Tank Battalion with newer equipment, the army took the equipment from the 753rd Tank Battalion.

Trucks and jeeps sit on flatcars on two separate trains.  This was done since each company of the 192nd took a different train route to California.
