History in the making: First Joint Strike Fighter training squadron stands up
from The U.S. Marine Corps
A small squadron of Marines marched toward the future of military aviation, recently. Marine Fighter Attack Training Squadron 501, currently only 37-Marines strong, stood up as the Marine Corps' F-35B Lightning II training squadron in a ceremony at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla. The squadron is the nation's first training squadron for the new Joint Strike Fighter, making the ceremony not only a first for the Marine Corps, but for the entire Department of Defense.
