You're seeing a lot of the #B52 lately, so here is a warfighter's perspective on the aircraft serving as a workhorse on the recent #BomberTaskForce missions taking place around the globe.

Have you had your daily dose of #airpower? 💪

D-Day is a reminder that freedom is fragile and great power peace requires allies, partners, and a commitment to the rules-based order of world.”

"In a groundbreaking cooperative engagement, the Royal Netherlands Navy’s HNLMS De Zeven Provincien (F802) employed its advanced combat system suite to provide an early warning ballistic track to the maritime task group. Upon receipt of this track information, Paul Ignatius was able calculate a firing solution to launch an SM-3 Blk IA and negate the threat."

"This highly technical level of interoperability is key to missile defense – a demonstration of the capability to fully integrate Allies into what was previously a capability singularly shouldered by the United States."

“As an Air Force ICBM operator (Missileer), I have thoroughly enjoyed immersing in the deep, storied culture of not just the Navy, but also the Submarine Service. The pride exuded by the men and women who wear Dolphins is truly energizing, and for me the best part of working with the Submarine Force is going underway and experiencing the tip of the underwater spear and living the ‘Silent Service’ mantra.”
