Drilling water wells at Camp Lemonnier, a United States Naval Expeditionary Base, situated at Djibouti International Airport in northeast Africa, and home to the Combined Joint Task Force – Horn of Africa of the U.S. Africa Command. It was established as the primary base in the region for the support of Operation Enduring Freedom – Horn of Africa. The Djiboutian government allowed for the base’s use by the United States, providing for demining, humanitarian and counter-terrorism efforts, and it now serves as the location from which United States and coalition forces are operating in the Horn of Africa. Today, Camp Lemonnier is the only U.S. military base located in Africa supporting operations geared toward building security, sovereignty, and stability in the region.  ND
