Happy birthday to the U.S. Air Force

U.S. Air Force birthday

Established in 1947, The U.S. Air Force (USAF) turns 72 on Wednesday, Sept. 18. According to its website, the lessons learned during World War II pushed the U.S. to explore possibilities both technologically and organizationally, which led to the separation of the Air Force into a separate branch of the military.

Today, the Air Force has bases on three continents with its mission to “fly, fight and win in air, space and cyberspace.” The Sunshine State is proud to be home to six bases and installations in Valparaiso, Fort Walton Beach, Panama City, Tampa, Cocoa Beach and Homestead.
