Ellsworth AFB Airmen Deploy to Afghanistan

About 350 Airmen from Ellsworth Air Force Base deployed Jan. 17 for a six-month tour as part of the U.S. military's mission in Afghanistan, reports the MyTown website.

They replace Airmen from Dyess AFB of Texas, the nation's other B-1 bomber military base.


"Aircrews, maintenance and support personnel from Ellsworth will execute B-1 bomber missions designed to provide multi-role airpower in support of U.S. and coalition forces," reads the EAFB press release about the deployment.
