Noble Fusion: VMFA-121 conduct aerial refueling

1st Marine Aircraft Wing

U.S. Marine Corps Cpl. Joseph Crisp, a loadmaster with Marine Aerial Refueler Transport Squadron (VMGR) 152, observes an F-35B Lightning II aircraft refuel during Exercise Noble Fusion near Kadena Air Base, Okinawa, Japan, Feb. 4, 2022. Noble Fusion demonstrates that Navy and Marine Corps forward-deployed stand-in naval expeditionary forces can rapidly aggregate Marine Expeditionary Unit/Amphibious Ready Group teams at sea, along with a carrier strike group, as well as other joint force elements and allies, in order to conduct lethal sea-denial operations, seize key maritime terrain, guarantee freedom of movement, and create advantage for US, partner and allied forces. Marines with VMFA-121 and VMGR-152 conduct training throughout the year, in the Indo-Pacific, to maintain a high level of readiness.
