Unit History: RAF Muharraq
Muharraq airfield is located adjacent to Bahrain International Airport. It is run by the United States Navy and usually ships supplies in and out of the airport with many of them from other countries as well. The U.S. Navy, the U.S. Marines, the Bahrain police force, and others run the security at the airfield.
Security there is considered one of the best in the world. With the September 11, 2001 attacks, security was beefed up with reservists of whom many had some sort of law enforcement experience while they were civilians. Many, for example, were police officers and federal agents before they were called up, which helped out tremendously. Muharraq Airfield was the last stop for most US troops headed to join the NATO forces in Afghanistan.
