The bombers will be accompanied by approximately 300 Airmen from Ellsworth AFB, South Dakota.<br /><br />Air Force Global Strike Command continues to routinely deploy bombers to Andersen AFB, which provides opportunities for Airmen to advance and strengthen regional alliances and long-standing military-to-military partnerships throughout the Indo-Asia-Pacific.<br />
