The United
States Air Force

The U.S. Air Force
is the aerospace branch
of the United States
military. Although the
Air Force is most well
known as the "flying"
branch of the military,
they are much more than
that.

The US Air Force originated
in August 1907 as the
Aeronautical Division
of the US Signal Corps.
After that point it
evolved into different
organizations and boasted
several different names.
Around 1941 it was called
the Air Corps and was
a combat section of
the US Army and the
subsequently the United
States Air Force was
formed in 1947 and became
the USAF that we are
currently familiar with.

The National Security
Act formed the Air Force
in 1947 and it states
that "the United
States Air Force shall
include aviation forces
both combat and service
not other wise assigned…"
Today the goal of the
United States Air Force
is to provide security
and support for the
defense of the United
States and it interests
world wide – to fly
and fight in Air, Space
and Cyberspace.

Around the world there
is no other air force
equaled in size, strength
and technology. Utilizing
thousands of manned
and un-manned aircraft
that perform a huge
array of tasks, as well
as boasting of more
than 250,000 active
duty personnel and in
excess of 150,000 civilian
personnel who provide
support, the U.S. Air
Force is the premier
air based fighting force
anywhere.
