Combat Proven! USMC F-35Bs conducted their first combat strikes in the CENTCOM area of responsibility in Afghanistan in support of Operation Freedom's Sentinel 27 September. Sailors and Marines aboard the Wasp-class amphibious assault ship USS ESSEX (LHD 2) prepared, launched and completed the mission. The F-35Bs supported ground clearance operations; the strike was deemed successful by the ground force commander.
