MOUNTAIN HOME AIR FORCE BASE, Idaho —
Gunfighter Airmen assigned to the 389th Fighter Squadron and Fighter Generation Squadron deployed to an undisclosed location in Southwest Asia the last week of September.
The “Thunderbolts” will support U.S. Central Command priorities and execute missions of local, regional and global importance in a critical strategic theater.
“In lead up to this deployment, the 389th Fighter Squadron TBolts conducted the most robust spin-up plan I’ve seen in four F-15E ops tours,” said Lt Col Beacher “Magnus” Webb, 389th FS commander. “This team is ready to provide dominant airpower in a wide array of critical roles in a challenging area of responsibility. TBolt Airmen will add to the proud history of the Gunfighters and the 389th over the next six months.”
