On the cover, and right here on page 2, is a limited edition print depicting a U-2 “Dragon Lady” on one of its high-altitude reconnaissance missions. With 65 years of service, the U-2 is a credit to one of the often unheralded aspects of combat and defense: the role of intelligence gathering. Without being noticed, the U-2 has been doing intelligence, surveillance, and recon work that keeps our shores safe from foreign threats. Also, right here on page 2, we have a model, kit, and t-shirt celebrating the U-2.
