WHITEMAN AIR FORCE BASE, Mo. --
On Wednesday, January, 18 2017, Whiteman's Total Force team executed precision strikes against two Daesh camps in Libya. The strikes, which were completed by two B-2s over the course of a 30+ hour mission, were enabled by the dedication and professionalism of every Team Whiteman member. The strikes were conducted in coordination with the Libyan Government of National Accord, authorized by the President of the United States, and validated our ability to strike targets across the globe anytime, anywhere.
