One of the most characteristic features of a soldier is definitely their outfit - your work in the U.S. Armed Forces must have been usually recognized by your uniform in active duty.

Basic Information on the U.S. Air Force
The U.S. Air Force is a branch of the U.S. Armed Forces administered by the Department of the Air Force, which is one of the three components of the Department of Defense.
The first antecedent of this force was created on 1 August 1907 as an element of the U.S. Army. Then, after 40 years of transformations in organizations, missions, and titles, it became an individual branch. During World War II, nearly 68,000 American airmen sacrificed their lives to contribute to winning the war (only the infantry had more casualties).
In reality, the U.S. Army Air Forces (USAAF) was practically independent of the Army even during World War II and functioned on their own at that time already. However, the airmen wanted to gain formal independence, and they succeeded when President Harry S. Truman signed the National Security Act of 1947 on 26 July 1947. In this document, it was stated there that the Department of the Air Force was to be formed. On 18 September 1947, W. Stuart Symington was sworn into the office of the first secretary of the Air Force, and from this moment on, U.S. Air Force became officially independent.
The Core Missions of the U.S. Air Force
The U.S Air Force has five core missions, which are as the following:
Global integrated intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR)
Command and control
Rapid global mobility
If you are a proud veteran who has dedicated many years to help to accomplish those missions, check out our U.S. Air Force bomber jacket or other pieces of apparel and gear for retired airmen. We are sure that something will catch your eye!
