Two U.S. Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcons fly beside a KC-135 Stratotanker from the 909th Air Refueling Squadron, waiting to be refueled during Exercise WestPac Rumrunner, Oct. 16, 2020, out of Kadena Air Base, Japan. The National Defense Strategy directs the armed forces to be more lethal, enhance relationships with allies and partners, and encourage institutional reform. The 18th Wing is employing this directive by developing and continuing new training exercises like WestPac Rumrunner. This exercise represents an evolution in training to adapt to the environment of great power competition. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Rebeckah Medeiros)
