Airmen from the 388th Fighter Wing and the Air Force ReserveĀ 419th Fighter Wing recently deployed to the Republic of Korea for several months demonstrating continuing U.S. commitment to stability and security in the Asia-Pacific Region.

Pilots, maintainers and operations Airmen flew from Hill Air Force Base to Osan, South Korea.

The movement of the U.S. Air Force fighters into the Pacific has been ongoing since March 2004 in order to maintain a prudent deterrent against threats to regional security and stability.

Hill's two fighter wings have been deploying side by side since July 2007 when the units began flying and maintaining a shared fleet of F-16 aircraft as part of an initiative dubbed Total Force Integration.

TFI seeks to enhance combat capability by capitalizing on the unique strengths of the active duty and Reserve components.
