The following countries and regions are included here:

The Horn of Africa and adjacent African countries:
  • Djibouti
  • Egypt
  • Eritrea
  • Ethiopia
  • Kenya
  • Somalia
  • The Sudan
The Seychelles, an island state in the Indian Ocean, is also included here. Other island states of the Indian Ocean, such as Mauritius and the Comoros, are included under "Asia" as they are in the AOR of the U.S. Pacific Command.
The Middle East:
  • Bahrain
  • Iraq
  • Jordan
  • Kuwait

Give a man a fish and you will feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you will feed him for the rest of his life.

Build a man a fire and he will be warm for a day. Set a man on fire and he will be warm for the rest of his life.
