- 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.
