Happy Birthday U.S. Air Force – 2015


Organized as the United States Army Air Force during World War II, the United States Air Force was brought into being on September 18, 1947 by a few strokes of a pen when President Harry S. Truman signed the National Security Act of 1947. The change to a separate, independent service branch recognized the need for increased air power for the defense of the country. Since then, it has served with great distinction during the Cold War, Korea, Vietnam, Bosnia, Iraq and Afghanistan, and in many other places throughout the world.
