#BringBackOurGirls-US Forces won't be involved in direct combat

U.S. defense and military officials are refuting any speculation that US  forces would be directly involved in a rescue effort.According to NBC news,Six U.S. military advisers arrived in Nigeria Friday to assist the nation in its search efforts, bringing the total number of US military personnel there to 18, including the 11 who are permanently assigned advise and help train Nigerian military forces. ,Two additional military personnel are set to arrive later Friday, and seven more will travel to Nigeria on Saturday

A Senior defence official said,
"We've been training Nigerian military and security forces in counter-terrorism for the past two years. They have to step up."We have no clear idea where they (girls) are.There's a lot we can do," said one senior military official. "Provide intel, training, advising, mission planning, communications. But we won't be the trigger pullers."
However,Vanguard reports that,United States Marines who are already in Maiduguri  located the girls inside the forest, using some Satellite equipment which combed the forest, located an assembly of the young girls and sent the images back to the Marines on ground in Maiduguri.
