Military stencil font decal

So I have pretty much decided what decals I want to put on my new Hella Yella JL Sport. Along the sides of the hood I want USN and my Dad's serial number, he served in the Navy during WWll. Where can I get a good military stencil font decal? I also want the distressed freedom star off centered on the hood - I know that isn't Navy, but I really like that.
TIA.

I've got mil stencils on mine, but used different fonts for different decals.
For the hood side reg no., I used Volkoff (it's blocky and looked like the metal slide-together stencil kits we used). For the maint markings etc, I used Barrel (it's rounder and more basic, and looks just like what we made with our stencil machines on stencil board). For the fender logo, I used the standard Stencil-Std-Bold (just a good stencil font). There are plenty of pics in my build thread (in my sig line)
I made mine myself, but any decal shop should be able to do them. Or try Military Graphics https://military-graphics.com/ . I used them for my ribbon rack, and it turned out great (and they have a lot of Navy stuff).

My JKU is also a tribute to my a Dad who was in the Navy during WWII. I got a ship silhouette from Military Graphics (very nice) and a US Navy third brake light cover from Jeep Tweaks.

I'll second the recommendations on Military Graphics and Military Stencils.

Military Graphics has a HUGE data base and you can't get more authentic than Military Stencils.

Another site to check out is Pixeldecals. This would be a good place for your distressed star.

Second the recommendation for pixdecals. They do good custom work as well.

Thanks for the suggestions. I looked over the sites and fonts, narrowed it down to 2 stencils. Now... Star in the center of the hood, or off center. I think I like off center better.

Beastmaster did a good write up of period correct stars on your jeep. Depending how authentic your want your jeep to be. Inspired me so much, I replaced my exiting hood star with the correct D Day Invasion star.

Thank you Beastmaster for the write up.
