    MINOT AIR FORCE BASE, N.D. --
    Three B-52 Stratofortresses from Minot Air Force Base, North Dakota, deployed to Andersen Air Force Base, Guam, Dec. 2.

    This short-term deployment will ensure bomber crews maintain a high state of readiness and crew proficiency, and will provide opportunities to integrate capabilities with regional partners in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.

    During the deployment, the B-52s will conduct local training sorties in the U.S. Pacific Command area of responsibility, allowing the crews to hone skills in several key capabilities including command and control, air refueling and long-range navigation.

    U.S. Strategic Command regularly tests and evaluates the readiness of strategic assets to ensure it is able to honor all security commitments.

    I am wondering if this will show some sort of Message to China as well.
