USAG Humphreys, Republic of Korea - —
United States and the Republic of Korea conducted a combined air training event with U.S. Air Force B-1s and F-16s alongside ROK Air Force F-35s through the Korean Air Defense Identification Zone.
The training offered the alliance an opportunity to rehearse short-notice recall missions, demonstrating the U.S.-ROK combined defense capability, and the ironclad commitment to providing extended deterrence in the defense of the Korean Peninsula.
U.S. Indo-Pacific Command maintains a resilient and rapid response capability in the Indo-Pacific theater, retaining the ability to quickly respond to any regional threat in support of our allies and to defend the U.S. homeland.
