U.S. Navy Dependents Return To Bahrain
ABU DHABI [MENL] -- The U.S. Navy has begun facilitating the arrival of what
could be thousands of dependents of American military personnel in Bahrain.
Officials said the U.S. Navy's Fifth Fleet approved the return of the
dependents for military and Defense Department personnel in Bahrain in June
2009. They said any of the 3,000 personnel in Fifth Fleet headquarters could
invite spouses and children to live in the Gulf Cooperation Council state.
