The 15th MEU/Peleliu Amphibious Ready Group is concurrently conducting HADR in Pakistan, its Harriers are conducting close air support from the Peleliu in Afghanistan, and of course the Marines aboard USS Dubuque have the readiness to conduct the "visit, board, search, and seizure" mission against the pirates on the Magellan Star.
