Happy Birthday Air Force! 72 years ago we became a separate force and have helped to forge the military and the American way of life ever since. From advanced composite development to pressurized aircraft to GPS to thousands of other innovations; the Air Force has made the world a better place. Great Airmen like Hap Arnold, Billy Mitchell, Chuck Yeager, John Boyd and countless others have shaped history and have paved the path for YOU. Celebrate the birth of the greatest Air service on the planet today and then do your part to shape the future of the Air Force tomorrow. We need you Airman.
