Riding and driving safe go hand-in-hand Benjamin Christensen, NDW Waterline writer

Carl Bennett, an instructor with Cape Fox Professional Services, discusses sports bike handling techniques with a Sailor during a sports bike safety course at Joint Base Anacostia Bolling.

As the scorching heat starts to die down with the end of the summer and the milder days of early fall approach, while on the road riders and drivers alike need to be aware of the tenets of motorcycle safety. According to Naval Safety Center (NSC) data, over 30 service members died in Fiscal Year 2011 due to mishaps on or related to a motorcycle. Indeed, odds are against those who ride motorcycles: the odds of dying from a mishap while on duty is only one in 23,134, one in 17,359 while in a car, but in stark contrast, the odds of dying during a mishap while on a motorcycle jump to one in only 2,954. While keeping these statistics in mind, one might ask what can be done by motorcyclists

to reduce those odds. The most obvious answer is one this is actually required by the Navy, not just recommended: education. The Naval Safety Center reports that 63 percent of the fatal accidents that occurred from FY'072011 involving Sailor motorcyclists were those who lacked initial training or mandatory follow-up training. "One of the most important things that Sailors and other riders need to keep in mind is that riding a motorcycle requires being a continuous student," said Daniel Moore, lead instructor for Naval District Washington's (NDW) motorcycle safety courses. "If you go out on deployment, when you come back take another course before you ride your motorcycle just to brush off the cobwebs." All Sailors, and that includes ones riding off-base, are required to take the Basic Riders Course (BRC), a course designed for one with

RapidGate Set to Expand at NDW Entry Control Points Benjamin Christensen, NDW Waterline writer RapidGate, a system for electronically verifying military, civilian and contractor credentials, is due for an expansive update in the upcoming months. In an effort to increase security at Naval DistrictWashington's (NDW) installations entry control points (ECPs), RapidGate, which is inherently connected to the earlier adopted Navy Commercial Access Control System (NCACS), is set to expand to include not only scanning the credentials issued through NCACS, but also those of military service members and their families and DoD civilians. NCACS currently has two parts, the vetting process (background check) and then ID verification each time an NCACS contractor comes onto an installation. In order to obtain installation access through NCACS a vender or contractor can visit any Pass and ID office and input required data into an NCACS kiosk. Once the information is entered into the system and the government office receiving the service verifies the

request as legitimate, the contractor or vendor's company is billed for the background check. After all funds are received, a background check is conducted and, with a clear record, credentials are issued. With these credentials in hand, contractors and vendors who require access but do not qualify for a Common Access Card (CAC) are able to quickly and safely access a base. RapidGate handheld scanners used at perimeter checkpoints are wirelessly connected to a database at the guardhouse, which then verifies the credentials as authentic and current. NCACS has also streamlined the movement of vital information and records from all levels of command at installations throughout the region. The new system allows for printouts regarding the enrollment, background, and status of contractor companies and employees in the program, which then can be used to brief command on base. "Twelve months ago, I couldn’t tell you how many companies I had," said Daryl Colter, non-guard services site manager for N3-Secu-

Northwest Sailors Volunteer at Veterans Home By MC2 Scott A. McCall, Navy Public Affairs Support Element, Det. Northwest More than 40 chief petty officers (CPO) and CPO selects, assigned to commands within Navy Region Northwest, participated in a community relations (COMREL) project at Washington Veterans Home, Aug. 9. The CPO selects, Sailors undergoing an induction process to CPO, assisted the grounds crew of the veterans home with brush clean-up of the campus, tree trimming and weed pulling. "Our ultimate goal is not only to make this thing pretty, but to give back and appreciate our veterans," said Chief Hospital Corpsman (SS/FMF) Robert Ripps, stationed at Naval Submarine Support Center on Naval Base Kitsap (NBK) Bangor. During the clean up the CPO selects also interacted with the veterans living on the campus sharing stories of their time currently serving and listening to the stories from those who preceded them. "Some of the selects broke off and engaged some of the veterans here that reside in the facility and they appreciate not

only us here helping maintain their home, but to listen and appreciate them and what they sacrificed for us and our nation," said Ripps. "A lot of times all people want sometimes is to be appreciated and someone to listen to them." WashingtonVeterans Home is on a 31-acre campus with a state-of-the-art facility serving more than 240 veterans needing both long-term nursing and assisted-living care. Don Veverka, superintendent administrator for the Washington Veterans Home, said that due to a limited budget the home can only allocate two people to manage the grounds for the entire campus, so they rely heavily on volunteers especially current active duty service members. "The help that we receive is a tremendous value to us, it allows us to keep the grounds looking, much better than they would otherwise," saidVeverka. "We rely on them very heavily to come and provide those extra hands and assistance in keeping the place looking better than it would otherwise. We respect and appreciate their contribution immensely." Veverka said the veterans love it when current active duty personnel take the time to visit. He described the service members here in the Pacific Northwest as being generous and very supportive of the veterans. "They come in and meet with our residents, they'll call

bingo, they'll engage in activities and involve with them, getting to know our residents," saidVeverka. "What is better then to have service veterans connected with active duty service personnel? They love it and look forward to it and are always eager to share their stories and their experiences, which really is very valuable to those that are engaged in the current active duty as well." Being able to have this opportunity to connect with the past had a big meaning for some of current active duty Sailors who participated in the COMREL. "It's amazing to me that they're here and we're here and they are from times before ours," said Chief (select) Logistics Specialist (SS) Bernard Drayton, assigned to StrategicWeapons Facility Pacific at NBK Bangor. "One day we'll be here and I'll come out and watch the young guys do it and be proud that they are following from were I came from." Ripps said that COMREL projects like this are very effective and important for the Navy by building a bond and uniting the Sailors with the surrounding community. "Even though our jobs all too often carry us away from our communities and our families, an event like this gives us a

Around The Yard What can we do to help make the roads safer for motorcycles and what can riders do to make it safer as well?

"More training, motorcycle awareness... I believe the more training we have and the more aware people are the better off they can be." CS2 Herschel Ross, CNIC

"Motorcycles should slow down and stop zipping up the middle, it scares drivers because they come out of nowhere. It's not all of them, my brother has a bike and he stays in people's mirrors to make sure people can see him."

"There's a billboard on 212 that says look both ways before entering the road, for motorcycles, so more advertisement." Jason Taylor, Strategic Systems Programs

Eisenhower, CVW-7 Commence OEF Missions By MC1 Nathanael Miller, Eisenhower Carrier Strike Group Public Affairs

An F/A-18C Hornet from the Rampagers of Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 83 launches from the flight deck of the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69). Eisenhower is deployed to the U.S. 5th Fleet area of responsibility conducting maritime security operations, theater security cooperation efforts and support missions as part of Operation Enduring Freedom.

Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 7, embarked aboard aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69), began flying the first combat sorties in support of Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF), Aug. 9. These missions will provide direct support to coalition forces on the ground in Afghanistan. The support includes electronic warfare, close-air support, airborne command and control, and reconnaissance. "Air-support missions are intended to degrade terrorist activities, diminish the influence of the Taliban and improve security to encourage economic prosperity in the region," said Capt. Samuel J. Paparo, CVW-7 commander. "We bring a wide range of capabilities to coalition forces in Afghanistan and take pride in the fact that we are working with them to establish security and stability there.

Every squadron has trained thoroughly for these missions, and now it is time to execute." Since 2009, U.S. Navy aircraft have averaged about 5,000 close-air support missions per year in support of OEF. Eisenhower joins the Enterprise Carrier Strike Group (CSG), led by aircraft carrier USS Enterprise (CVN 65), which has been operating in the U.S. 5th Fleet area of responsibility since April. While air support will be the primary focus in support of OEF, Eisenhower and other CSG surface ships can also achieve a robust set of missions in support of regional maritime security. "Our mission is to set the conditions for economic prosperity, which encompasses ensuring maritime security of all commercial sea lanes," said Rear Adm. Michael Manazir, commander, Eisenhower Carrier Strike Group. "The versatility of our capabilities and vitality of our Sailors allows us to be flexible

NEX Hiring Staff for Facility's Opening By MC3 Nathan Parde, NSAB Public Affairs staff writer The Naval Support Activity Bethesda (NSAB) Navy Exchange (NEX) is aiming to fill approximately 200 positions over the next three months to prepare for the opening of a new 150,000 square foot facility. "The grand opening is Nov. 10," said Rick Pimentel, general manager of the NSAB NEX. "One of our main goals is to hire within the military community. We love to hire spouses

and wounded warriors. This is why we are here - to support [service members] and their families, and improve their quality of life." The new facility is being designed as a joint service facility that is also accessible to individuals with special needs. "Elements of the store's construction are tailored for the wounded warriors, such as extra-wide aisles and handicapped accessible counters," said Pimentel. "We want to accommodate everyone in the military and not just

certain groups of people." Pimentel said there are a variety of jobs available, and the goal is to have all positions filled prior to the store's opening. "We have full-time, part-time and flex positions," said Pimentel. "Flex positions are people who are not committed to any one set of hours, but may be able to adjust their hours around other part-time jobs that they might have." Preparing for a new facility's opening takes a lot of manpower, said Pimentel. "We hire in teams and phases, so these

teams can help put the store together by assembling fixtures and stocking shelves. Then, the entire staff will be here for the grand opening," he said. To aid in their hiring efforts, the NEX will be participating in several upcoming job fairs, including a job fair hosted by NSAB, said Pimentel. "We have several job fairs planned, including the 100,000 jobs fair on Aug. 25," said Pi-

100,000 Jobs Mission Hiring Event

As part of an ongoing initiative to provide jobs for wounded warriors, transitioning service members, veterans and their spouses, Naval District Washington (NDW) Family Support Programs will host a second hiring event Saturday, Aug. 25 at Naval Support Activity Bethesda (NSAB). The initiative - "100,000 Jobs Mission" - was launched in March 2011 by a number of leading companies, with a goal of hiring 100,000 transitioning service members and veterans by 2020. Through their efforts, thus far, they have hired more than 12,000 veterans. At the event, attendees will have an opportunity to meet with several potential employers. "Our nation's military and veterans represent the best this country has to offer. We owe our nation's veterans more than gratitude - we owe them the opportunity to lead successful lives following their service," the initiative's website states. Additionally, "We believe hiring veterans is not only the right thing to do for veterans, but it's a great thing to do for our businesses. Our nation's military and veterans represent the best this country has to offer and they bring meaningful skills to the workplace." The hiring event will take place in the gymnasium (Building 17) from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Attendees must show proof of military service, i.e. military ID card, veteran ID card issued by theVA, or DD-214 along with a photo ID, to enter the base.

Defenders of Freedom Appreciation Day

Naval District Washington's (NDW) Morale, Welfare, and Recreation (MWR) will be hosting an Appreciation Day for all Department of Defense personnel and their guests on Saturday, September 22, 2012 at Six Flags of America in Largo, Md. The park will be open from 10 a.m. - 7 p.m. with a special performance by legendary rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd from 7 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. Tickets are available at all Navy Information, Tickets, and Tours (ITT) offices throughout NDW and select locations within the National Capital Region for $18. The first 5,000 eligible customers to purchase tickets will gain admission to the performance by Lynyrd Skynyrd. This unique special event will offer these military and DoD civilian personnel a wonderful opportunity for exclusive use of the Six Flags of America theme park and admittance to see one of the all time legendary bands, Lynyrd Skynyrd, perform that evening. Without question, this is a great opportunity for MWR to show appreciation for those who put their lives at stake for the personal freedom we all enjoy.

Association of Naval Services Officers' Welcome CNO By MC2 Byron C. Linder, Navy Public Affairs Support Element West San Diego Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Adm. Jonathan Greenert addressed attendees of the Association of Naval Services Officers' (ANSO) 32nd annual convention at a luncheon, Aug. 9. ANSO fosters the growth, advancement and recognition of Hispanic officer and enlisted personnel in the uniformed naval services, encompassing the Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard. Their annual convention focuses on leadership, professional development and training through a series of workshops. Greenert took the stage and reflected on the history of Hispanic contributions to the naval services, noting former Secretary of the Navy and ANSO founder Edward Hidalgo and Adm. David Farragut, the first Hispanic admiral in the U.S. Navy. "I need some ideas to be better in our ability to recruit and retain Hispanic officers and enlisted leaders," he said. "We need to continue to nurture and bring this along, and ANSO is a very good source for that. It's a very good institution." Greenert emphasized the importance of diversity in the naval services, citing teamwork between the services as a key element to successfully accomplishing the nation's

"The best are out there. It's about mining that wide range of people. It's not about quotas. A diverse team will always perform better than a group of similar thinkers from the same background." Greenert proceeded to take questions on a variety of topics, ranging from perform to serve (PTS) to educational opportunities. ANSO president, retired Rear Adm. Will Rodriguez, presented Greenert with a package of ANSO coasters to bring the luncheon to conclusion. Rodriguez noted the ANSO convention provided many unique opportunities for the attendees. "The CNO understands what we need to do. He's dedicated to what we do and to the Sailors. We can't fight without the people, and that's his number one focus," said Rodriguez. "If you come to ANSO, you're going to get access to these key leaders and commercial leaders that can help you transition.

AFPAK Blog: On the Ground

Army Capt. Tobias Petros, an Afghan Hand serving with International Joint Command Reintegration, shares photos of his family with Afghan National Army officers in Kabul, September 2011. Editor's Note:This is part three of a five-part series of an article by Sgt.1st Class Mark Porter entitled 'Afghan Hands helping to reshape Afghanistan'. It helps to better describe the AFPAK Hands program and its impact on the region.

Best and brightest

While Zellem was in a high-profile situation, his success, Viney said, was not simply a matter of placement, but a combination of personal drive and command support. “As much as anything, success for the Afghan Hands depends on their enthusiasm for the work and their determination to get out and make things happen,” Viney said. “That is why it’s so important for this program to access the very best people each service has to provide.” In fact, per the chairman’s guidance, the program seeks only the“best and brightest leaders our services have to offer.” The program also seeks volunteers as much as possible. “If you volunteer to participate in something, you’re going to be more dedicated to its success,” explainedViney. At this point, he estimates about 60 percent of AFPAK Hands are

From Colony to Superpower: U.S.ForeignRelationssince1776 Reviewed by CDR Youssef Aboul-Enein, MSC, USN


From Colony to Superpower: U.S. Foreign Relations since 1776 by George C. Herring. Oxford University Press, NewYork. 2008, 1056 pages. The Oxford History of the United States is an important multivolume series expanding our understanding of American history. It brings together powerful thinkers on America’s history such as James McPherson’s volume “Battle Cry of Freedom: the Civil War Era and David Kennedy’s “Freedom from Fear: The American People in Depression and War, 1929-1945.” The latest volume is Professor George C. Herring’s volume on U.S. foreign relations. This happens to be the only thematic volume in the Oxford Histo-

ry of the United States series. Herring opens with the Revolutionary period and the tenuous nature of America’s experiment balancing democracy with republican for government. The newly formed United States could’ve easily succumbed to being a junior partner in what French rev-

olutionaries called an “Empire of Liberty!” Instead we were fortunate to have the moderating influence of GeorgeWashington, and the raucous debate between Jefferson, Adams, Hamilton, and Madison that kept us from the inflamed passions of the French Revolution. Readers will learn how European encroachment on the western hemisphere would be a constant concern for much of America’s history. During the American CivilWar (1861-1865) Britain and France looked to exploit American divisions, with France sending combat forces to Mexico and installing a puppet regime that was ousted by Mexican revolutionaries under Benito Juarez. The efforts of Charles Adams, grandson of John Adams, and American Min-

REVIEW Continued from 6 ister to London, kept the British from interfering in the Civil War. In the late nineteenth century, America would experiment with being a rising power, and was enticed to maintaining colonies won from the Spanish after the 1898 SpanishAmericanWar. The United States foreign policy debate revolved on maintaining American dominance over the Philippines, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Caribbean, and Latin America and the corrosive impact this had on American values of liberty. Admiral Alfred Thayer Mahan (1840-1914) wrote books that justified the need for American expansion-

ism, a mission taken by President Theodore Roosevelt but opposed by such influential writers as Mark Twain. As you read through this marvelously written text, you will note an evolution in American foreign policy from Manifest Destiny to Wilsonian ideals, the intervention in two European wars, to balance of power during the Cold War. Today, the United States is in search of ways to define its foreign policy in a century of globalization, war on terrorism, and other challenges to America’s security and that of the globe. Editor’s Note: Commander Aboul-Enein is author of “Militant Islamist Ideology: Understanding the Global Threat,” published in June 2010 by Naval Institute Press. He maintains a regular book review column in the NDW Waterline.

As it stands now, the system only is used to verify the credentials of contractors whose companies, not being eligible for a CAC card, have participated in the NCACS program of vetting and background checks. However, soon those RapidGate handheld scanners used to verify NCACS issued credentials will also be capable of doing much more. "Hopefully within the next three months, we will be able to rollout with the new software that is applied to the handheld, for the capability to read CAC cards, military and dependent cards," said Colter.

The idea here, according to Colter, is that adding that software component to the visual component allows for "backup" for the human eye and physical feel of the credential, which can be counterfeited. Electronics, however, are a tougher nut to crack. With any new system, however, there comes an adjustment and acclimation period. According to Colter, as the occasional growing pains of getting used to NCACS/RapidGate have proved valuable to the implementation of the program at other facilities, such as Naval Support Facility Carderock, it is believed that the implementation of scanning of all credentials at the Washington NavyYard will provide valuable input to be used in the rollout of the system at other Navy facilities. "We have six fence-lines underneath [NDW]," said Colter "If there's a piece that isn't working, we can fix it before it gets out to the other installations." In any case, some useful changes are coming to the various NDW installations, and RapidGate is slated to make sure that the right people are in the right place. ing to do what we need to do to help out our community."

NEX Continued from 3 mentel. "We will have a stand with information about the Navy Exchange, the types of jobs that we have, and how to access our website and apply for those positions.We will have people from Human Resources there along with key management staff, ready to hire." The 100,000 Jobs Mission hiring event will bring approximately 50 companies to NSAB, and attendants will be able to interview and possibly even be offered jobs on the spot, said Paul Grossman, regional work and family life coordinator for Naval District Washington. "Everyone who comes will definitely have an opportunity to talk to the many employers that will be there, and may be given opportunities for employment and job offers while at the event," said Grossman. "The companies that are coming are looking to hire, because they know the value that military, wounded warriors, veterans and spouses bring to their companies."

In addition to the job fairs, the best way to see what positions are available at the NEX is to go online, Pimentel said. "Individuals can apply by accessing our website, mynavyexchan, and clicking on the link 'Work For Us.' Then, you can see what jobs are available as they open up. New jobs will be posted as we enter different phases of hiring and preparing for the store's opening. If you create a profile and check back frequently, then you will see when the jobs are posted." The new NEX will be more than three times the size of the previous 45,000 square foot location. The larger facility will offer expanded services, such as a food court, pharmacy, barbershop, beauty salon and a flower shop. Pimentel encourages anyone who is currently on the job market to submit an application. "If someone is interested in a position, they should follow the procedures to apply, because we are ready to hire," said Pimentel. "We like hiring the great people in the military community, and I am very excited for what lies ahead."

little or no riding experience) or above (courses such as the BRC2, Military Sportbike Riders Course) prior to operating a motorcycle, DoD civilians are also required to do so if they intend to ride on a DoD installation. These courses are generally offered at least once a month during the summer at various installations; for the NDW area, these bases include Naval Support Facility (NSF) Dahlgren, Naval Air Station (NAS) Patuxent River, Joint Base Andrews, and Fort Meade (Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling's training area is due to be repaired.) Sailors and DoD civilians riding on base must also renew their certifications every three years. According to Moore, being a "lifelong learner" is one of the keys to staying safe as one can never be too properly trained. In 2011, 46 percent of the Navy and Marine Corps sport-bike deaths were due to the rider losing control of the bike in daylight and good weather. This, according to the NSC, indicates that they were operating a motorcycle that they simply did not have the skills or experience to control. "[Sailors] come back from overseas and they have a fistful of money, and go into dealers and buy motorcycles with no training," said Moore. "A mistake people get into is that they buy too much of a bike for their skill level; you have to grow in your abilities as you grow in the size of the motorcycle." Automobile and truck drivers have a responsibility to keep the road safe for motorcyclists, and themselves, as well. The United States Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) has a list of the top ten things all car and truck drivers should know about motorcycles located online at A few of the highlights of this list include always maintaining vigilance while driving and especially around motorcycles: they are smaller, and therefore harder to see/blend into blind spots easier so one must always be aware of his or her surroundings, and one should always give motorcycles a wide berth while on the road. "When a motorcycle is in motion, don't think of it as motorcycle; think of it as a person," implores the MSF. Riding a motorcycle can be a thrilling and worthwhile experience, but it should never be thrills at the expense of safety: Drive and ride safe, avoid distractions, and maintain proper gear including a helmet. Super simple stuff, but it makes sense.

success,” explained Viney. At this point, he estimates about 60 percent of AFPAK Hands are volunteers, with the rest being “voluntold” into the program. “Volunteers bring a desire that carries over to the job,” Viney said. “An adventurous nature and a desire to get out and interact are important personal attributes to bring to this job.” Army Lt. Col. Leonard Draves, an Afghan Hand serving in Kabul, agreed. “You always must think out of the box,” he said.“At times it is very dangerous. It is not for the faint hearted and folks without fortitude.” Combine that adventurous nature with a command that understands and supports the program, and success often follows. Unfortunately, that was not the case initially, as some commanders saw the "Hands" simply as additional bodies. “At the start, many commanders didn’t understand the value and the unique skills that Afghan Hands offered, and saw them only as additional officers to help with the existing mission,” said Viney. “In many cases they were given staff

Manazir stressed how critical every Sailor of the carrier strike group is to mission success, from flight deck personnel, to the pilots, to the engineers. "Everyone has a role and everyone does it exceptionally well," said Manazir.

jobs and not permitted to employ the special training they received.” Draves was initially given a staff position at International Security Assistance Forces (ISAF) with“no need for an Afghan Hand.” He contacted the AME-F, who redirected him to a more appropriate position. Thankfully, Viney said this misuse of Afghan Hands personnel seems to be a thing of the past. As the group has recorded more and more successes, leaders are realizing their value and, in many cases, seeking them out. That appreciation for the program is recognized up to the highest levels. “Through what you do, you have a chance to be special here,” said Maj. Gen.William Rapp, deputy commander, U.S. Forces-Afghanistan – Support, in a brief to incoming Afghan Hands.“You can be special if you think of yourself … as BASF, the company that used to say in their advertisements’ ‘We don’t actually make anything; we make things better.’ “You can be special if you are that connective tissue that connects people,” he added. “You get Afghans working with Afghans. And you, by virtue of your skills; by virtue of your language skills; by virtue of your contacts … you become that connective tissue wherever you happen to be assigned.”

F-35 Completes First Airborne Weapons Separation By Victor Chen, F-35 Integrated Test Force Public Affairs The F-35 Lightning II accomplished a significant test milestone Aug. 8 when the aircraft successfully released a weapon in flight. BF-3, a short take-off and vertical landing F-35 variant, executed an inert 1,000-pound GBU-32 Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM) separation weapon over water in an Atlantic test range while traveling at 400 knots at an altitude of 4,200 feet. "While this weapons separation test is just one event in a series of hundreds of flights and thousands of test points that we are executing this year, it does represent a significant entry into a new phase of testing for the F-35 program," said Navy Capt. Erik Etz, director of test for F-35 naval variants. "Today's release of a JDAM was the result of extraordinary effort by our team of maintainers, engineers, pilots and others who consistently work long hours to U.S. Navy photo courtesy Lockheed Martin/Andy Wolfe deliver F-35 warfighting capability to the U.S. F-35B test aircraft BF-3, flown by Lockheed Martin test pilot Dan Levin, completed services and our international partners." the first aerial weapons release for any variant of the aircraft.

on the ground and in the air. "[Using an internal weapons bay] speaks to how much capability the JSF is going to bring to the troops," said Dan Levin, Lockheed Martin test pilot for the mission. "Stealth, fifthgeneration avionics and precision weapons ... coupled with the flexible mission capability of the short take-off and vertical landing F-35B is going to be huge for our warfighters." An aerial weapons separation test checks for proper release of the weapon from its carriage system and trajectory away from the aircraft. It is the culmination of a significant number of prerequisite tests, including ground fit checks, ground pit drops and aerial captive carriage and environment flights to ensure the system is working properly before expanding the test envelope in the air. Aircraft and land-based test monitoring systems collected data from the successful separation, which is in review at the F-35 integrated test force at Naval Air Station Patuxent River. The F-35B is the variant of the Joint Strike Fighter designed for use by U.S. Marine Corps, as well as F-35 international partners in the United Kingdom and Italy. The F-35B is capable of short take-offs and vertical landings to enable air power projection from amphibious ships, ski-jump aircraft carriers and expeditionary airfields. The F-35B is undergoing test and evaluation at NAS Patuxent River, Md., and Edwards Air Force Base, Calif., prior to delivery to the fleet.
