MARINE AIR STATION IWAKUNI, Japan - U.S. Navy Logistics Specialist 3rd Class Joshua Turner greets his daughters at Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Iwakuni, Japan, Dec. 4-5, 2017. Friends and family waited for their service member to fly in and welcome them home to the air station. USO Iwakuni greeted Sailors after their long flight with food and a gift card. The relocation of Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 5 from Naval Air Facility Atsugi to MCAS Iwakuni fulfills the final Defense Policy Review Initiative objective. The relocation is in accordance with the United States’ strategic vision for the rebalance in the Indo-Asia Pacific Region and does much to further strengthen the U.S.-Japan security alliance.
