Well known fact known to only a few, the US Air Force invented M.A.R.S.

Radio didn't become useful until the National Security act of 1947 which made the U.S.
Army, Navy and Marine Corps their own independent branches. They were all under the
USAF before then.

B.T.W. George Washington crossed the Potomac in his F-111 or was it an F-104. I can't
remember. I sometimes get my facts mixed up.

Off to 160 meters phone.

Kraus, I hope you enjoyed your time on 160 meters.  But to set the record straight:

US Army was established on June 14, 1775
US Navy established on October 13, 1775
US Marine Corps established November 10, 1775

You are correct that the US Air Force was created as a separate branch in 1947...prior to that it was called the Army Air Corps and was actually started by the Army Signal Corps.

As for radio, radio use began as early as 1912 in the armed services and was widely used throughout WWI and WWII.

Hope you have a great radio day!
