Today is the 67th birthday of the U.S. Air Force.
As the youngest branch in the military, the Air Force gets a bad rep.
Other service members are often critical of the relative comfort and higher standard of living afforded to airmen and airwomen.
But they’re no runt of the litter — the Air Force has the highest budget of the four branches, and its operational capabilities are robust and exciting.
In short, the Air Force is way tougher than you think.
