Chad Carlson SDNG Public Affairs Office MILBANK, S.D. - A South Dakota Army National Guard unit transported shipping containers of retrograde ammunition from California to depots in Nevada and Utah as part of Operation Patriot Bandoleer during their annual training in March. Soldiers of the Milbank-based 740th Transportation Company, and its detachment in Aberdeen, supported U.S. Army munitions readiness requirements while enhancing knowledge and skills throughout the operation. "Operation Patriot Bandoleer provided a real world operation and tangible mission for our Soldiers," said Capt. Terry Berndt, 740th company commander. "Supporting the retrograde mission was invaluable to training our unit and Soldiers." OPB is a multi-component logistic event that supports the Army pre-positioned stocks program, involving the movement of thousands of tons of munitions and war reserve material. Collectively, Guard units from seven states moved 483 containers, primarily from the Military Ocean Terminal Concord (MOTCO), California, to six different depots and arsenals across the nation. The 740th hauled 60 of the containers from MOTCO to the Hawthorne Army Depot, Nevada, and Tooele Army Depot, Utah, experiencing numerous variables and challenges on the way. "From the mountainous terrain and winter weather conditions at Donner Pass (northern Sierra Nevada) to bumper-tobumper traffic in California, our operators saw just about every driving scenario finding the right job is easier than you think By U.S. Sen.

This is enhanced even further when coupled with the regulatory relief we’ve been working with the administration to achieve. In addition to rolling back burdensome regulations administratively at federal agencies, Congress has been able to undo 16 major Obama-era rules under the Congressional Review Act. The Senate also recently passed a bipartisan bill to roll back burdensome regulations on our community banks and credit unions, which will help them be able to better serve local businesses and customers. By relieving businesses from time-consuming, outdated regulations, small businesses will no longer be bogged down by costly paperwork that has stifled innovation and slowed economic growth for far too long. The National Federation of Independent Businesses is predicting that regulatory reform and the tax relief bill will result in “very strong growth, millions more jobs and higher pay for Americans.” And we’re already seeing that happen: Small business confidence has hit a record high, jobless claims are at record lows and the economy is growing faster than it has in a decade. We’re glad to see our policies are already having a positive effect on our small businesses and look forward to continuing to seek ways to create a business-friendly environment for them. Small businesses are the backbone of our economy and the heartbeat of our communities. National Small Business Week is a time to highlight the significant contributions of small business owners across the country.
