U.S. Deploys Bombers to South Korea

    In military parlance "deployed" means moved to a forward position. These bombers flew a non-stop, round-trip mission from Whiteman AFB in MO to South Korea and back to Whiteman. The more appropriate term would be "employed," as in the bombers were employed for a mission.
