One of the 5 branches of the U.S. Military. Consists of some of the bravest people on this planet, including my brother-in-law. He attended R.O.T.C. training at UCF a few years ago, then married my sister, (they make a great pair) and they left for Randolf AFB in Texas for a year. Now they're stationed in Barksdale AFB in Shreveport, Louisiana. He's a navigator in a B-52 bomber, and getting deployed to Guam next year. An extremely brave guy, and a great brother! So just remember that everyone in any branch of the Military is willing to die for their country to keep all of us selfish assholes safe!
The Air Force was established in 1947, shortly after WWII. OH YEAH, and my dad flew the F-4 Phantom in his carrer, thankfully he never had to go into combat. GO USA!

A force made up entirely of computer nerds, which has rightfully earned it the nickname "chair force".
Its a shame those airforce guys go through 8 weeks of boot camp to learn how to sit.

Arrogant flyboys who think they are better than every other branch of the military. What they don't realize is that their jobs can be done by the Navy and Army. Compensates for this by saying they have the ability to launch nuclear weapons. Often forget that the Navy has the most survivable leg of the nuclear triad. Never recognized by anyone in the real miltary, and wears the worst uniforms out of all the branches. Only has best looking girls in the DoD because they cannot get civilian girls to give them the time of day. Also passed on making Top Gun.
For the past two years Air Force has not been able to keep Navy from "stealing" the Commander in Chief's trophy. This might be a result of the DoD investigation into the reports of them lowering their standards to let in otherwise unqualified players.

The United States Air Force is the second least martial of all the military services next to the United States Coast Guard. Their role of maintaining air dominance over combat zones is made all the more easy due to our enemy's complete lack of aircraft. Most airmen will tell you that they are the smartest of all the uniformed service members. Do not be fooled by their ruse, as this statement is merely an attempt to distract you from their crippling shame at having chosen such a cowardly way to serve their country.

The Air Force refers to their indoctrination training as B.M.T. or Basic Military Training. This six week process takes place at Lackland Air Force Base, Texas. During the course of their six week training Airmen spend exactly one week taking part in activities that could be classified as military. Known as Warrior Week, Airmen take part in a 2-3 day field exercise where they sleep 8 hours a night inside of air conditioned tents, carry blue rubber dummy rifles, and spend exactly one single day shooting with live rounds. Whereas the Army and the Marine Corps require their recruits to hit targets up to 500 meters away in order to graduate from Basic Training, the Air Force standard is met when a recruit merely fires a rifle once.

Air Force deployments rarely last more than 120 days. Most Air Force personnel spend their deployments inside the F.O.B. or Forward Operating Base, and as such have acquired the nickname "Fobbit". Although on extremely rare occasions Airmen are put into harm's way, the overwhelming majority of them deploy to places like Qatar where they can bask in the sun, go off base to the local shopping mall, and relax in a swimming pool before retiring for the evening.
I was going to join the Peace Corps, but I thought the Air Force would be safer.

The Chair... er, I mean AIR Force are those guys who wear BDUs like the Army, but are too good for guns. The Air Force is organized into Commands, Wings, Groups, Squadrons, and Flights (just to remind people that even if only a small fraction of the service is represented by pilots, the Air Force is all about planes). If at all possible they prefer to stay in the break room and watch TV for the better part of their work day. Many nations have Air Forces.
Get off your lazy asses and go bomb those SOB terrorists!!! Oh wait, we are grilling burgers and watching cable, then closing up early for the four day weekend. Maybe later.

An Air Force is a force composed largely of air. So much air, in fact, that it barely qualifies as a "force".

(1) A Government-funded amateur flying club (2) An organization composed of prima dona aeronautical wannabes who were unable to find employment in the private sector. (3) A civilianized baby sister of Marine and Army Aviation whose song was written by the "Army Air Corps wives" (you read that right)(4) A misleading service with illusionary airmen who think they are on the same level of honor as the Marines as they drive from their air conditioned quarters to in their air conditioned cars to their air conditioned work stations.
The airmen of this branch themselves serve as an example of the entire Air Force as they can easily be picked out of a line by being a pitiful, chair-borne, public assistance program reject. A useless person whose lack of initiative, intellect, and physical stamine renders him incapable of finding employment elsewhere.

The Air Force is the youngest branch of the DOD. As the name implies, the Air Force is mostly oriented with aviation. Though this is common with the other branches of the DOD, the Air Force is “special”.

Unlike other branches of the Military, the Air Force needs to be coddled and nurtured. The lack of carpet on a barracks room floor with send the average Airman into state to where he/she has to cope by succumbing to a fetal position, crying himself/herself to sleep. Not to worry, for they are paid an extra allowance for after living under such “harsh conditions” whenever they have to mingle with other branches of the Military.

The Air Force can also be defined by their Physical Readiness. Where most branches conduct PT (Physical Training) through a series of running, push-ups, sit-ups, pull-ups, eight count body builders, etc, the Air Force simply have to ride a bicycle in order to prove their readiness for military standards. Correction; Air Force military standards.

An interesting trait about the Air Force is their lack of vocal processing. While other branches of the military sing cadence while they march, the Air Force does otherwise. Due to a default that could possibly be blamed on memory, coordination, and lack of style, the Air Force can only march to the singular sound of the word “Hut”.

Ex: “Hut…Hut…Hut…Hut…Hut…etc”

Because the Air Force is “special”, they disregard all other branches of the DOD, especially to another member of the service that outranks them. This can include the colors ceremony…the raising and lowering of our nations flag. Where the other branches of the military stand and salute Old Glory, the Air Force is allowed to casually conduct their business and pay no mind to the National Anthem that is played over a loud speaker.

The Air Force, unlike other branches, is allowed to move their families to their duty stations abroad. This allows them the comfort and stability to defend the nation. How other branches of the military go without this is still a mystery and under investigation. But, fret not, for these young Airmen and Sergeants families. They will have carpet, I assure you.

Guy 2: "You probably should have joined the Military instead."
