  • TransAm (Transfer of DoD Excess Medical and Other Supplies to Native Americans).

This program transfers excess DoD medical and other supplies to Native American communities. Military personnel received training in air and ground transportation, loading, and movement. Supplies and equipment, in the amount of $6M, were delivered to 126 Native American urban health facilities around the country.

  • Reef-Ex. This program used excess tanks and personnel carriers to construct artificial reefs in our coastal waters. Military training was accomplished in staff planning, hazardous materiel handling, rail loading, port operations and barge loading, and movements. Approximately 500 excess tanks and personnel carriers were laid in off shores reef sites. Analysis indicates that these artificial reef sites will enhance the coastal economies by millions of dollars through increased commercial and recreational fishing.
