Re: US Army and Navy boxcars during WW II + ammunition placards


Here is a photo I took of a U.S. Army car in 1982. The stencil says
the car was built in 1941.

That car may have been built in 1941 but the 1943 ORER shows only tank cars under US War Department. Also, USAX was a post WWII reporting mark, which replaced the USQX on the WWII tank cars.
I would therefore guess that army, or any government, ammo shipments were made using regular RR boxcars.
