By the insignia on the end, a load field artillery.
Handy boxes there- shell containers to the front, coffins to the rear.

If that says "U.S. Rifles", those boxes are full of M1903 Springfields. Dad talked about how disappointed he was, when Uncle Sam took away the Springfields he trained with, and handed him a Garand. He weighed 114 pounds, and the Garand weighed 9-3/4 pounds.

Yes, I believe boxes say "10 US Rifles".

Kinda ironic, the trucks for Red Cross Service and it's carrying a load of rifles!

Check out the coachwork detail on that closed cab. The mouldings around the side windows and the decorative pillars at the sides, and the pin striping are reminiscent of early hearses. That is one spiffy truck!

Allan, you nailed it for me. I missed the details the first four times I looked.
What a handsome cab and trucks!
Is the second truck a Runabout?
Why does it appear that the running board is angled?
Cool pic!

Duey, if those are original running board brackets, they have been modified at the frame rail end. The uphill look may just be an accidental tweak in service.
