Operation Provide Relief

Operation Provide Relief started in August 1992 with the deployment of over 400 men to Mombasa Kenya. Ten C-130 aircraft started airliftig humanitarian aid to remote areas in Somalia.
From October to December 1992 one Platoon from the 287th MP Company Berlin Brigade deployed to Mombasa to provide security to US Forces.

After the airlift did not succeed, Operation Provide Comfort was launched with ground troops landing in Somalia.
