For the first time, the Pentagon on Friday acknowledged publicly that the U.S. military is operating on the ground in Yemen.

Navy Capt. Jeff Davis, a Pentagon spokesman, said that a small number of American military personnel are in Yemen "providing limited support" to the Yemeni government and Arab coalition battling al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP).

The USS Boxer Amphibious Ready Group is operating off the coast and providing the medical support. The ARG includes the 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit, the USS Boxer, the USS Gravely and the USS Gonzalez.

By proxy and covert involvement since 2003. We positioned ourselves 20 years early. As our generals always plan. We are surrounding our enemies. However our allies are weak fools now. Thankfully the Japanese are building up now.
