Polar Growl mission

A B-52H Stratofortress from Barksdale Air Force Base, La. receives fuel from a New Hampshire Air National Guard KC-135R April 2, 2015, near the eastern coast of Canada. The B-52H was returning home after supporting a U.S. Strategic Command-directed mission to the Arctic and North Sea regions called "Polar Growl.” The mission was to provide a flexible and visible signal that highlights the U.S. ability to deter strategic attacks and respond to any potential future crisis or challenge.
