Camp Patriot, also known as Kuwait Navy Base is located on the Southwestern coast of the country of Kuwait. It is used by the United States Fifth Fleet who calls themselves as the Camp Patriot.
Camp Patriot Navy Base,
Road 240, Ahmadi Kuwait.
The army base was set up for the United States Army and Kuwaiti Armed Forces. Furthermore, the Camp Patriot Army Navy Base was established to conduct military training exercise and operation. The Camp Patriot military base is deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom, the multi-national coalition effort to free the people of Iraq, get rid of Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction, and bring an end to the regime of Saddam Hussein.
Around the start of the 2nd century, at the time of Operation Enduring Freedom, the base was home to over 3,000 soldiers of the American-led Coalition who fought in Iraq.
Camp Patriot is famously known for its lengthy pier that measures 1,400 feet. Light vessels and cargo vessels both dock on the pier for loading and unloading. This pier has seen numerous cargo containers with equipment that were used for logistics and most likely even for the war to unload equipment and supplies for the use of United States of America’s army. Both the US Marines and British Marines were given proper support by the arms and machinery which were transported in during the Operation Iraqi Freedom.
ELCAS (M) was built in a joint effort by Amphibious Construction Battalions (ACB) One and ACB-2, homeported in Coronado, Calif. and Little Creek, Va. respectively.
Around the year 2003, altogether, there were over 3,000 joint-service members stationed at Camp Patriot. At present, the total of those stationed in this military camp or base has expanded. In the year 2003, several of those stationed at Camp Patriot used to support the Operations Enduring and Iraqi Freedom.
Camp Patriot serves as home base to numerous soldiers, sailors, marines, airmen and coast guardsmen. They work there in support of the Operation Iraqi Freedom; a mission that aims to free the oppressed lesser Iraqis from the reign of Saddam Hussein.
Besides, the mission also aims to bring down the weapons of mass destruction that were said to be on Iraqi soil.
Camp Patriot had seen the creation of the System of Elevated Causeway of U.S. Navy or the ELCAS (M). At present, the ELCAS (M) serves as an expeditionary pier that connects the surf zone and thus offers a bridge between the beach and cargo vessels.
Under the Elevated Causeway System-modular, the Navy Seabees and army transportation companies continue the backload of military supplies and ammunition for US Marines and British royal marines. Backloads are operating on all possible fronts at Camp Patriot, from barge’s ferry stabbing the beaches maintained by the Seabee to Landing Craft Utility vessels getting loaded down from the ELCAS (M).
The 24-hour operational capability of Camp Patriot makes sure that the men and women of the 24th and 15th Marine Expeditionary Units reach home faster.
