White Stars on the Doors of M-725 Ambulance.

Post by RedCross184 » Wed Apr 13, 2016 6:41 pm

I am restoring an 1967 M-725 Ambulance and was wondering if the white stars goes on the doors? I see some images of the doors with stars on them and some without. Again, any information would be great help to me...

The National Symbol "5 pointed star" is not applied to medical service vehicles. It might be found in AR-746.

Thank you for letting me know that medical vehicles are not suppose to have the National 5 pointed star. I was wondering why people have them on in the images that I have seen then, my guess they didn't know what they were doing I suppose...

My guess is that they are unaware of the regulation.
