Choctaw Nation awarded $20M to build equipment for military

The Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma is supporting the U.S. military with one of its businesses.

Choctaw Defense was recently awarded a $20 million contract to produce equipment for the U.S. Army. The CAMEL II will be manufactured at three tribal facilities.

“One of our goals is to expand industry in southeast Oklahoma,” CEO Stephen Benefield told The Oklahoman. “We offer jobs, good paying jobs to people during a time when it is most needed.”

Choctaw Defense employs about 230 people.
