    IWAKUNI, Japan - Marine Fighter Attack Squadron 232 returned to Iwakuni Aug. 21 after participating in Exercise Southern Frontier and Pitch Black 2012.

    SF12 was an annual, unilateral training exercise hosted by the Royal Australian Air Force allowing Marine Aircraft Group 12 F/A-18 squadrons the opportunity to focus on offensive-air support training in order to improve squadron readiness.

    PB12 is a biennial multinational exercise in the country of Australia designed to facilitate large force training and coalition interoperability out of Royal Australian Air Force's Base Darwin.

    On order, VMFA -232 conducted close-air support, air interdiction, offensive anti air warfare, and suppression of enemy air defenses in a multinational environment from Royal Australian Air Force's Base Tindal in order to increase squadron combat readiness.
