U.S. Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcon from the 35th Fighter Wing, Misawa Air Base, Japan, is being refueled by a KC-135 Stratotanker from the 909th Air Refueling Squadron during the second iteration of Exercise WestPac Rumrunner, July 31, 2020, at Kadena Air Base, Japan. The National Defense Strategy (NDS) directs the U.S. military to be more lethal, improve relationships with allies and partners, and encourage institutional reform; the 18th Wing supports the NDS by developing and continuing new training exercises like WestPac Rumrunner.
