F-35B Preps for Combat on 1st Middle East Deployment
 
Military.com 11 Sep 2018 By Gina Harkins

Marines are loading bombs onto the F-35B and dropping them over the desert as ground troops prep for combat missions during the Joint Strike Fighter's first-ever deployment to the Middle East.

About 4,500 Marines and sailors with the Essex Amphibious Ready Group and 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit are putting their combat skills to the test this month in the Horn of Africa. They're participating in a two-week-long Theater Amphibious Combat Rehearsal that includes everything from quick-reaction force drills, deck-landing qualifications, simulated recovery of downed pilots and aircraft, and counter-mine training.
