Bahrain

Called one of the most important U.S. Navy bases in the world, the U.S. military base in the Middle Eastern nation of Bahrain provides food, fuel, water and other supplies to the U.S. Navy ships operating in the Persian Gulf.

U.S. forces in Bahrain also contribute to the Combined Task Force (CTF), a multi-national force that interdicts the movement of terrorists, narcotics, arms or items related to weapons of mass destruction in the Arabian Sea. The troops have also been critical to helping apprehend Somali pirates.
