YOKOSUKA NAVAL BASE, Japan — The USS Wasp on Wednesday left the 7th Fleet — its home for more than 1½ years — as it shifts homeports from Sasebo Naval Base in Japan to Naval Station Norfolk, Va., according to a Navy statement.

During its time in the 7th Fleet, the amphibious assault ship made history as the first to deploy with the Marine Corps’ fifth-generation F-35B Lightning II stealth fighter, which is capable of short takeoffs and vertical landings. https://www.stripes.com/news/pacific/uss-wasp-leaves-7th-fleet-and-japan-for-new-us-homeport-1.597175
