Gamblers provide full-spectrum support for Unified Protector

An F-16 Fighting Falcon assigned with Shaw Air Force Base, S.C, deployed at Aviano Air Base, Italy in support of Operation Unified Protector. The Gambler AMU and the 77th Expeditionary Fighter Squadron from Shaw Air Force Base, S.C., supported the Operation Unified Protector for more than five months in enforcement of United Nations Security Council Resolutions 1970 and 1973. The goal of Operation Unified Protector is to protect civilians and civilian-populated areas in Libya under attack or threat of attack. The mission is focused on three main areas: an arms embargo, a no-fly-zone and actions to protect civilians from attack or the threat of attack. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Julius Delos Reyes)
