The official birthday for the US Air Force is 18 September 1947 as enacted under the National Security Act of 1947.
I can’t let this occasion slip by without saying thank you to all of the fly-boys who have contributed to this newest branch of the American military.
My husband and son have both been airmen of which I’m very proud.
Here are photos of some World War II vets whom I’ve interviewed who have also served.
Thank a veteran today!
