Happy Birthday USAF

Apparently, today is the :fireworks::sparkler::tada: 70th birthday of the United States Air Force! :tada::sparkler::fireworks:

That’s pretty cool! When you think about how aviation come since the Wright Brothers first flew in 1909, and how far the USAF has evolved over it’s 70 year history, it is amazing to see the impact aviation has had on the world - civilian and military.

Gotta give the Air Force credit…

In the Army, the officers send the enlisted men out to die.

Ummm. Isn’t there a LOT of area of district 8 that would reasonably be excluded from the term “coast”

Anyhow, its what i like about your coast guard, its far better equiped and armed than Australia’s entire navy. (i would say the UK’s as well but thats a given because only the brits think its a great idea to have an aircraft carrier with no aircraft to go on it.)
