US military presence in Uganda . . .

Uganda's Old Airport May Become a US Military Base, July 28, 2003:

"Uganda has offered the Old Entebbe Airport to be used as a regional military base for US, according to Ugandan security sources.
"This was one of the subjects of US-Uganda security co-operation on war on terror, brought up during bilateral talks here on July 11 between presidents Yoweri Museveni and George Walker Bush."
"Reports indicate that the airport, with a three-kilometre runway, will be used as a refuelling point by US military jets. The possibility of US troops being stationed here is not far fetched, according to government sources."
