A good read on the 69th anniversary of the US Air Force. Cadets may recognize a few names in here.

Fun facts: The first two Army pilots to solo were Lts. Frank Lahm and Frederic Humphreys, on 26 October 1909. They crashed the plane the following month and were quickly transferred out of aviation. They were taught how to fly by Wilbur Wright himself.
