ANDERSEN AIR FORCE BASE, Guam --
More than 200 Airmen and three B-2 Spirits from Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri, deployed to Andersen Air Force Base in support of U.S. Pacific Command’s Bomber Assurance and Deterrence mission. U.S. Strategic Command bombers regularly rotate through the Indo-Asia-Pacific region to conduct USPACOM-led air operations, providing leaders with deterrent options to maintain regional stability. During this short-term deployment, the B-2s will conduct local and regional training sorties, and will integrate capabilities with key regional partners, ensuring bomber crews maintain a high state of readiness and crew proficiency.
