Rock Island Arsenal Humvee Ambulance Line

The Rock Island Arsenal’s Humvee ambulance production line will be extended another two years as a result of $60 million which U.S. Senator Dick Durbin and U.S. Representative Cheri Bustos added to the Fiscal Year 2015 Defense Appropriations Bill, the Congressmen announced on Monday, April 6th during a visit to the Arsenal’s Joint Manufacturing and Technology Center in Rock Island.  The Army intends to use that funding to extend the existing line through August 2017, producing an additional 658 Humvee ambulances.
