Controls nuclear weapons for the United States. Most unappreciated branch of the military. This is largely due to ignorance. Our planes are usually the first into a wartime environment to clear the way for soldiers and marines.

Many "soldiers" who look down upon the Air Force do not realize that there are many fighting members of the Air Force that are not Officers. While most of the enlisted force has noncombat duties, there are many career fields that place enlisted men in the field.

Combat Control and TAC-P are Special Forces that enter combat zones to fight alongside marines and soldiers and call in air strikes. PJs (Pararescue Jumpers) are the tip of our Special Forces, they jump into extreme combat situations to rescue Marines, SEALs, and Rangers. They have received some of the highest awards in the service, such as the Medal of Honor.

Even Security Forces (MPs for the Air Force) now have extended training on convoys and urban warfare since the war on terrorism started. Security Forces now performs convoys in Iraq and Afganistan, and conducts sweeps throughout Iraqi cities near Air Bases. The 820th Combat Security Forces Squadron were some of the first servicemen to jump into Iraq along side of the 82nd Airborne. Select Security Forces personnel also attend Phoenix Raven (advanced hand to hand combat) Training, as well as Army Ranger school

While most of the Air Force are slackers, there are a select few that are true soldiers. You will see them wearing berets and flight suits.
Air Force Berets are earned not issued, unlike the Army..

Underappreciated but valuable branch of the military. Can also destroy the known world when properly outfitted (ie: nukes).
Britain ruled the seas, but America owns the skies.

The greatest Air Expeditionary Force the world will ever see. Capable of supplying troops with air conditioned tents in the middle east, while our fellow branches get all toasty in their "tents?". Also owner to the greatest bomber, the B-52H stratofortress. Bye bye sucka's

The single-most feared asset of the DoD. The Air Force has single-handedly won wars (Bosnia, Kosovo), ended wars (WW2, Vietnam), and prevented all-out wars (OIF, Desert Storm). No other branch can claim "Dominance" like the USAF. The USAF has not lost an aircraft to enemy counterparts since the 1970's. The US Navy does not have "Water Dominance" nor does the Army have "Land Dominance". However, the USAF has AIR DOMINANCE. We not only deliver Precision Guided Missiles, but we do it better than anyone. We have the best people, the best assets, and the best track record of any branch in the DoD. People are leaving the Army and Navy to join the Air Force. The Air Force is having to kick people out because everyone wants in and there is no more room. Yes, we may have A/C in our tents. So what? Do not tell me that you would prefer your tent to be 130 degrees as opposed to a nice cool 73. Never forget who softened up the Iraqi Republican Guard. Never forget who enticed the surrender of the Iraqi Army before the war even started. And, never forget who you call when you are in trouble. AIR POWER!
*Insert other branch here* Troop: Man, I wish I had a A/C unit in MY tent!

*Insert other branch here* Troop: Shit! Enemy contact! Call for Close Air Support!

*Insert other branch here* Troop: I should have joined the Air Force instead of the *insert other branch here again

The most feared and most respected branch of the Armed Forces of the United States.

Contains enlistees smart enough to repair the most expensive equipment in the entire US inventory, strong enough to KO one of those Army guys (have you seen their basic training lately?) with enough restraint to not rape any schoolgirls of another nation like the Marines and Sailors.

Underrated physically, even though their PT standards are more rigorous than the Army and Navy's, on par with the Marines, and despite the fact that as far as boxing goes, the AF has been shitting the best fighters for the past two decades (Marine Corps Martial Arts? Lol. Whatever.).

The only branch of the Armed Forces of the United States whose personnel contribute to the 40+yr DOMINATION of their domain; the skies. And they have done so without the help of allies. No million-soldier/marine invasions on some beach. No waterbattles resulting in the loss of a million ships. No battle losses at all. When was the last time you heard of the Army or Marine Corps dominating the land? Or the Navy dominating the sea? Never.

Owners of the greatest aircraft ever invented. The only branch able to kill you two times before you even know that you're at war.

The best there ever was, whose pilots are better and smarter than those psuedopilot wannabes of the other branches who are just mad because they didn't have what it took to cut it in the Academy. Fags.

Hated on by all these other branches that would like to think that they can win wars without them, like this is the fuckin' 18th century, and we still march in columns and then shoot at each other.

The most respected branch by our citizens, because of our intelligence, power, and capability.
"The Air Force is useless. What is that? A tank up there?? Oh god! A flight of enemy aircraft? Quick! Call the Air Force!!"

The Air Force's mission is to fly, fight, and win, and have been doing so since 1947. While only 4% of the Air Force are piolots, it takes a lot more people than you'd think to get those planes off the ground.

An equal force in the DoD. Given the chance Air Force personel could and are playing an effective role on the frontline, having assumed the responsibility of convoy guards.

The branch with the best food, living conditions, education, post-military opportunities, and women.
The Air Force spend almost 100 times more money on education of it's troops that the Marines, Army, and Navy put together.
