In the past few days, the U.S. military has carried out a series of other temporary deployments, such as the amphibious assault ship Badan (lhd-5), carrying about 2200 Marines from the 26th expedition, heading for the Middle East, the report said.

The Pentagon also ordered about 3000 paratroopers from the 504th airborne infantry regiment of the 82nd Airborne Division in Fort Bragg, North Carolina, to travel to the Middle East on January 5. The 2nd Battalion of the 504th airborne infantry regiment, which was initially deployed, flew to Kuwait on January 1 to reinforce US forces in the area.

The 82nd Airborne Division of the U.S. Army, currently subordinate to the 18th airborne division of the U.S. Army, nicknamed the United States, is the first airborne division of the U.S. Army, and the only fully formed division of the U.S. Army that can enter the combat area by parachuting. With a total force of about 12900, it is based in Fort Bragg, North Carolina, and has participated in many local wars (including the Second World War II World War).
