The Air Force’s F-35A is deploying internationally for the first time this weekend, heading to Europe to conduct training exercises with NATO allies, the Pentagon announced Friday.
The Defense Department offered sparse details about the event, which will involve deploying a “small number” of F-35As from the 388th Fighter Squadron at Hill Air Force Base, Utah to an undisclosed location in Europe.
The deployment is part of the European Reassurance Initiative.

While I generally appreciate the content of your posts, I feel that drawing extra attention to the movement of our brethren is irresponsible. Oh, I'm sure that multiple news agencies cover it too but I don't think that they should.
Let your plans be dark and impenetrable as night and when you move, fall like a thunderbolt - and all that.
I would surmise to say that if CNN & FOX were around when Sun Tzu was alive, The Art of War would never have been written. Giving up strategic movement, regardless of the reason, shouldn't be allowed.
