Strange halftrack markings

A few years back I gave my M3 halftrack an overhaul and repaint. When rubbing down layers of paint on the bonnet/hood I came across these markings. It's obviously ended up in Germany, presumably at a training depot of some sort. Can anyone throw any further light on what you can see here?

Here I have gone over them in white chalk

Also came across the white chalk bit below

USA Training Support
Exercise Area HQ
Possibly Camp Aulenbacher (map gives me between Rhineland and Saarland. Sounds right for US Zone).
Used as a base training vehicle for units rotating in for training. Early version of what the Army called POMCUS
I've checked with journalists,

it's a tank
Some of you are not taking this seriously!

I'm just jealous of Halftrack having a halftrack. I did have a Dodge WC52 for a while and that was fun.:cool:
