Marines to conduct scheduled sustainment training in Kuwait

U.S. Marines from the USS Gunston Hall will conduct previously scheduled sustainment training in Kuwait in the coming days. The Marine Corps has conducted sustainment training in Kuwait on a regular basis for two decades. The region is of specific concern because of the terror group ISIL's march toward Baghdad. The Gunston Hall is part of the Bataan Amphibious Ready Group. It departed Norfolk, Va. in February and is operating in the 5th fleet area of responsibility on a routine deployment to support maritime security operations. The deployment of U.S. Navy assets are regularly scheduled and are in accordance with our longstanding commitments to the security and stability of the region.
