meet those needs; and to provide the standardization necessary for 
achieving a fully automated system for routing DOD freight traffic.''
    The additional sentence (to be added at the end of the paragraph) 
will read: ``Movements of ammunition to, by, for, or on behalf of the 
United States Coast Guard (USCG) are also covered by this publication. 
References throughout this publication to DOD shall be understood to 
include such shipments for the United States Coast Guard as well.''
