Thanks CdG. After all of those officer groups, I thought we should post some of the men who made it possible for those "knights of the air" to take wing. After all we know that Air Service/Air Corps/Air Force enlistedmen are the smartest of all enlisted. In the other services, the officers salute their men and send them off to battle, in the Air Force, the enlisted salute the officers and send them off to fight! :)

To be alone, to have your life in your own hands, to use your own skill, single-handed, against the enemy. It was like the lists of the Middle Ages, the only sphere in modern warfare where a man saw his adversary and faced him in mortal combat, the only sphere where there was still chivalry and honour. If you won, it was your own bravery and skill; if you lost, it was because you had met a better man

Erick,

 

Nice group! - I think sometimes that good enlisted Air Service groupings are more difficult to come across than officer's items. Great rank patch.
