A branch of the military services known for direct action and a casual approach to problem-solving. Sleeping under clean sheets is an essential component of the lifestyle.
Example 1. If you need a bridge, factory or city removed, call the Air Force and it will be gone before happy hour at the Officers' Club.

Example 2. If you told Navy personnel to "secure a building," they would turn off the lights and lock the doors. The Armywould occupy the building so no one could enter. Marines would assault the building, capture it, and defend it with suppressive fire and close combat, leveling it in the process. The Air Force, on the other hand, would take out a three-year lease with an option to buy.
