Enlist Today!

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything of a historical nature, so here you go.

The United States Army Air Service was established May 24, 1918 replacing the Aviation Section, U.S. Signal Corps which had been the nations air force since 1914.  The Air Service would separate from the army and become the United States Air Force on September 18, 1947.

    I found a slideshow from LIFE magazine with more posters:
