Airmen and local leaders gathered at Andersen AFB, Guam, on Dec. 18, 2009, to commemorate Linebacker II, the intense 11-day bombing campaign of North Vietnam in December 1972. More than 150 B-52s operated from Guam during the campaign, which is credited with bringing the North Vietnamese back to the negotiating table and leading to the end of direct US involvement in the Vietnam War. Here, two B-52s fly over Andersen's Arc Light Memorial Park during the commemoration ceremony.
