Picked up a nice Ike jacket to a semi-local fellow.  British-made bullion USAAF on the left, British-made USSTAF on white felt on the right. I get that they were divested from the VIII Bomber Command or what have you, in February 1944 to facilitate D-Day and put all the "strategic" stuff under one roof to finish the war in Europe.  I tried looking into it, but the wikipedia page was pretty bland... I can understand the roles of various parts of a Bomb Group, but wondered what all departments or responsibilities did USSTAF fill?  What I have found seems like a huge range of functions, from Intel to "base services."  

 

Just hoping somebody can give me a "here's the deal... " in simple terms.
