F-16 Units Prepare for Routine Theater Security Deployment

By Pacific Air Force | May 28, 2014

JOINT BASE PEARL HARBOR-HICKAM, Hawaii — Approximately 12 F-16s from New Jersey and Washington, D.C. Air National Guards are set to deploy to Kunsan Air Base, Republic of Korea, on June 1, 2014, demonstrating continuing U.S. commitment to stability and security in the Asia-Pacific region.

Air Combat Command continues to routinely deploy fighter aircraft to the region, providing Pacific Air Forces and the U.S. Pacific Command a Theater Security Package, deepening ties with our allies and our relationship with the international community.

Movement of U.S. Air Force fighters into the Pacific has been a routine and integral part of U.S. Pacific Command's combat capable air forces and regional force posture since March 2004, in order to maintain a prudent deterrent against threats to regional security and stability.
