When it is the Marine Corps birthday, everyone seems to know it.  I get emails and I never served in the Corps.  I usually remember the Army's birthday and often catch an article illustrating a celebration of sorts.  But the Air Force, being the youngest of the branches, yet I didn't know it was the AF's birthday until a post on CAP Talk.

Nice video.  Real nice that they included a large amount of pre 1947 US Army aviation history in their 65 year (post 1947) history.

Rather the habits than being awakened at 0430 by the first sergeant to use a tooth brush to clean dirt from the floor in the hallway....such great memories of being Air Force on Fort Benjamin Harrison....oh, and how about those health and welfare inspections....
