U.S. Strategic Command headquarters staff, components, and subordinate units participate in Global Thunder to test readiness and ensure a safe, secure, ready and reliable strategic deterrent force. Large-scale exercises of this nature involve extensive planning and coordination and provide unique training for assigned units and allies so they are ready and prepared to execute orders globally wherever and whenever needed.
