Mission Statement: "Execute Nuclear Operations and Global Strike...Anytime, Anywhere!"
Vision: "America's premier bomb wing - Trusted Airmen executing nuclear and conventional airpower...combat-ready today, preparing for tomorrow!"
The challenges and demands of this unit's mission are many and varied. Yet, Whiteman's people meet those challenges and demands daily with great pride and professionalism which have been a proud tradition for many years.
Today, Whiteman is the home of the 509th Bomb Wing, which operates and maintains the Air Force's premier weapon system, the B-2 bomber. The B-2 brings massive firepower to bear, in a short time, anywhere on the globe through previously impenetrable defenses.
The mission of the United States Air Force is to fly, fight, and win...airpower anytime, anywhere..
To achieve that mission, the Air Force has a vision:
With a Total Force of more than 689,000 personnel, Airmen work to support all aspects of airpower, which includes five core missions: air superiority; global strike; rapid global mobility; intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance; and command and control. Airpower also requires people and resources dedicated to unit readiness, base infrastructure and talent management.
"Delivering airpower for our nation requires more than just aircraft; It requires Total Force Airmen – active duty, Guard, Reserve, civilians – in all Air Force specialties working together as a seamless team to operate, maintain and enable our mission and bring the unique capabilities and effects of airpower to bear." -- Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. CQ Brown, Jr
