What is an airstrike?
In the "Newspeak" of today's media, released by DoD no less, an "airstrike" is what occurs when one air-delivered weapon detonates on the ground. Many of you familiar with the term "airstrike" consider them to be formations of aircraft, one or two dozen aircraft, acting in concert to hit a target or group of aimpoints. "Strike packages" consisting of dozens of "sorties" of individual aircraft are flown against assigned targets over the course of days or weeks.
Welcome home George H. W. Bush Strike Group. I was in Virginia Beach last Saturday and saw the carrier offshore waiting for the tide, then enter the channel for her homecoming at Pier 12. Carrier Air Wing Eight had flown off the day before. Joyous photos of family reunions and well wishes on Facebook and text messages of congratulations on thousands of phones. Job well done, and we owe today's veterans our thanks and appreciation for fighting this away game for us.
