It served with great distinction during the war in Southeast Asia, helping to break the resistance of North Vietnam to a peace settlement. It has also been a major contributor during the many conflicts in the Middle East. Although well beyond what should be considered a normal lifetime of a combat aircraft, the B-52 has continued to play a major role in our warfighting capability.
