JOINT BASE MCGUIRE-DIX-LAKEHURST, N.J.  -- A KC-10 Extender from Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, N.J., refuels a B-2 Spirit from Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri, March 6. Tankers are critical to U.S. Strategic Command, and Air Mobility Command is the only Air Force command with trained Airmen able to provide and meet their air refueling needs.  For this reason, tanker crews routinely practice bomber refueling during Bomber Assurance and Deterrence mission around the globe, during exercises and in day-to-day operations.  (U.S. Air Force photos by Senior Airman Joshua King)
