September 18 was the Air Force’s 75th birthday.
It was officially formed in 1947, two years after WWII ended.
During World War II, the aviation branch of the military was an arm of the Army. It was called at different times the Army Air Corps and Army Air Force.
As a proud supporter of our military, I offer this post as a tribute to some of those veterans I’ve interviewed who served in those branches during World War II.
My books in which their stories are printed and their Amazon links are included.
Thanks to every veteran for your service. We appreciate it!
