Red River Army Depot (RRAD)
• Texarkana, Texas
The Red River Army Depot (RRAD) sustains the joint warfighter’s combat power by providing ground combat and tactical systems sustainment maintenance operations.
RRAD is a strategic national asset with more than 80 years of service to America’s Armed Forces. Designated as the Center for Industrial and Technical Excellence for tactical wheeled vehicles, Bradley Fighting Vehicle System, Multiple Launch Rocket System (MLRS), Small Emplacement Excavator 220223-A-DO523-291, rough terrain forklift and a multitude of secondary items, the depot also oversees the remanufacture of road wheels and tracks for various vehicle systems.
RRAD was established in 1941 as an ammunition storage depot. Because of the demands of World War II, the mission was expanded to include general supply storage and tank repair.
