Pentagon Saves $100 Million A Year By Cutting Countries Where Troops Receive 'Imminent Danger Pa

• Business Insider

Among the more than 20 locales dropped from the new list, which takes effect June 1, is Bahrain, headquarters to the U.S. Fifth Fleet, plus the waterways of the neighboring Gulf, Arabian Sea and Red Sea, where the Navy regularly deploys its ships.
