The first jeep I ever owned I got as a teenager in the 1970's and it was an unrestored '45 GPW that was also a USMC jeep. It had an S on the side of the cowl. Other than hood numbers and USMC they had very few markings from what I have seen. I believe the S meant the jeep had a suppressed ignition system as to not cause radio interference.

Marine vehicles carried very few markings. The hood registration number was about it unless more than one Marine division was involved on that battlefield. If so the simple emblem for the division was displayed.
