Marine expeditionary unit on Kearsarge transits Strait of Hormuz amid Iranian tensions

An U.S. Navy amphibious assault ship and a Marine expeditionary unit transited the Strait of Hormuz this week after the Pentagon already dispatched a carrier strike group and an Air Force B-52 bomber task force to the region amid tensions with Iran.

The amphibious assault ship Kearsarge transited the Strait of Hormuz on Tuesday, bringing with it the 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit. The sailors and Marines were “outbound,” a U.S. defense official said on background.
