Objectives Budwieser, Sarah, or Bluebird
Phase Lines Utah, Nevada, or Kentucky
Assembly Areas Bravo, Kilo, Lima

An operation simply denotes the entire planned sequence of events required to meet a defined objective or goal.
The name has changed from the last operation because the objectives that were contained in that plan have been met, therefore the operation is
Of course, they didn't meet their objective, so in a way, I guess keeping the same operation designation would be logical.
