Operation Reflex Action
Click Certificate for larger image
Due to the need to assure the United States maintained a twenty-four hour readiness to immediately respond to a surprise enemy attack the United States Air Force conducted an airborne experiment to determine the feasibility of re-fueling B-52 bombers around-the-clock. Proving itself an astounding success, The Congress of the United States approved funding to create an all-weather B-52 strike force to serve both as a deterrent to enemy attack, and as a response should an attack occur. All commands of the United States Air Force were tasked to assure the necessary success of Operation Reflex Action, which continues to this day. Authorized for active or Ready Reserve service during the Operation Period, 1952 through 1992.
