WASHINGTON (AFNS) -- At the Air Force Association's Air Warfare Symposium in Orlando, Florida, Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James announced the newest bomber addition to the Air Force's long history of aircraft, the B-21. Now it's up to you to name it.

"I'm challenging and I'm calling on every Airman," James said. "We want our active-duty, our (Air) National Guard, our Reserve, our civilians, our family members; we'd like all of you to give us your best suggestions for a name for the B-21, America's newest bomber."
