EIELSON AIR FORCE BASE, Alaska --
Reserve Citizen Airmen and their active-duty counterparts in the 345th Expeditionary Bomb Squadron took part in an extensive Bomber Task Force mission yesterday, which included integrating with NATO Allies and partners’ fighter jets. The mission flew over multiple geographic regions near the eastern-most portion of Europe and the western-most portion of the Pacific Ocean.
Today’s Bomber Task Force operation is a demonstration of the U.S. commitment to Allies and partners and the Air Force's ability to plan, execute and coordinate multiple complex missions at speed.
This mission demonstrates the U.S. Defense Department’s ability to command and control its bomber force for any mission, anywhere in the world, at any time, in support of the U.S. National Defense Strategy.
