I know people on here post things about the Marine Corps Birthday for celebratory purposes, and that's all dandy and whatnot, but since our airpower is so dominant it tends to be forgotten...

 

18 September 1947

 

In the aftermath of WWII, the National Security Act of 1947 finally separates the Army Air Forces from the United States Army and it creates a separate branch (along with ensuing department) known as the United States Air Force. Recent (at the time) advents in aerial warfare and the introduction of nuclear weapons reinforced thoughts about an independent branch to focus on these new missions.

 

Nevertheless, Air Force still borrows much from the Army (uniforms lol), but it continues to push the boundaries of technology and it continues to play an important factor in the peace between global superpowers. We have flaws but the best thing I ever heard a four-star say is that even on our worst days, everyone else would still rather be us.

 

Hua!

Nice. My family has a history in the Air Force, and I plan on going to the Air Force Academy. 

 

No, I’m not defending German technical superiority, I’m stating the ****ing obvious!

Fun fact: The USAF has the largest air force in the world. The second largest is the US Navy.

We could be dominating space someday too! Kinda cool to think about.
