MEDICAL MATERIEL CLASSIFICATIONS ACTIONS
This section of the DA SB 8-75 series has been automated in an effort to provide
each activity with the most current materiel classification actions regarding the
assignment and availability of NSNs, in addition to MCN.NSN deletion/replacement

b. Revised Availability Announcements of NSNs.
