Happy 71st Birthday Air Force!
The US Air Force was officially founded on September 18, 1947, and in the decades since it has established itself as an air force second-to-none.
WWII illustrated the value of airpower, and the need to change the basic organization of the US Military Forces. In 1947 President Truman signed the National Security Act which established this new defense organization, and along with it the creation of the US Air Force as an independent service, equal to the US Army and US Navy.
