    Happy Birthday USAF!!!!!

    Only two defining forces have ever died for you:
    1. Jesus Christ.
    2. The American Soldier, Sailor, Airman, Marine, & Coast Guardsman.
    One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.

    The best thing that ever happened was separating the Army Air Corp. and making it the Air Force. But hey I have a bias. 79-2001

    I used to tease my Uncle John (Lt. Col., pilot, former POW, Bronze Star w/ valor device, Silver Star) whose years of service were 1940-1968: “You went in wearing green and came out wearing blue.”
