US Lockheed Martin F-35 Lighting II jets arrived in Estonia’s Amari air base on Tuesday.
According to the information received by the ERR online media outlet, the jets remained in the Baltic country for several weeks and in that time will carry out training flights with other US and allied forces’ aircraft. Estonia, a former Soviet republic, shares an almost 200-mile-long border with Russia.
F-35s will also deploy to Romania, another current NATO member and former Warsaw Pact ally of the Soviet Union, the official said.
Both Estonia and Romania are wary of Russian aggression following Moscow’s annexation of Crimea. The official said the F-35A deployment to Europe is part of the European Reassurance Initiative set up in the wake of that annexation.
I received not only the patch I ordered, but also several other high quality patches as well as a hand written note. I am very satisfied with Morale Patch Armory's quality as well as their service. I can guarantee that several airmen from my squadron will soon become customers of Morale Patch Armory just based on the excellent product and service I received.
Some businesses just sell you things and do not follow ups or show any appreciation for your patronage. This company goes above and beyond for their customers and I was flabbergasted with the way they treated me and my order. Personal touches really shows how much they care and I’ll be a repeat customer for sure. The products come in excellent packaging and is high quality patches. You can’t go wrong with them as you’ll love your items and the company.
I had ordered this patch and my post office mis delivered it. I was pissed and thought I wasn’t getting one. Morale patch armory sent me another pepe plus an extra patch. Thank you Morale Patch Armory.
I ordered 2 SrAAF patches for an upcoming combat dining out. True to E-4 custom, this was a last minute idea and I needed them delivered to an APO ASAP. They arrived in just 7 days. Though the patches are more grey than regular ABU green (-0.5 star), their construction is top notch.
Just like the Chief SrA patch, looks just like it is! Yet again, super sticky velcro; don’t ever count on it falling off your pack or hat. Excellent to wear for that next safety brief before the weekend or when you’re not on day shift! As always, party and wear responsibly.
