I believe the 3-bar insignia were sued to designate various units by a color/bar code for loading on ships for the invasion. I'm not sure if it was for operations security or easy ID. There are numerous pieces of equipment with such markings. They range from duffel bags to trucks. I think each horizontal bar was given a color code. Anyone have any info on that?
