Benjamin Franklin nailed it when he said, "Fatigue is the best pillow." True story, Benny. There's nothing like pushing your body so far past exhaustion that you'd willingly, even longingly, take a nap on a concrete slab.
The U.S. military sent a nuclear-capable B-2 stealth bomber from Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri on a long-range mission to the Pacific area of operations over the weekend, it said Oct. 29, a day after Secretary of Defense James Mattis highlighted North Korea and its “accelerating” atomic weapons program during a visit to South Korea.
The B-2 Spirit is one of three strategic heavy bombers in Air Force service. Originally conceived to infiltrate the Soviet air-defense network and attack targets with nuclear weapons, over the decades its mission has grown to include conventional precision attacks. The B-2 is the most advanced bomber in U.S. service and the only one of three types that still carries nuclear gravity bombs.
