Tribute to U.S. Air Force

U.S. Air Force Tribute

Air Force in Germany tells Dave Letterman:
Top 10 cool things about being in the Air Force

Top 10 reasons I love my Job - Air Lift Personnel

Air Force Anthem
(Robert Crawford)

Off we go into the wild blue yonder
Climbing high into the sun;
Here they come zooming to meet our thunder,
At' em boys, give 'er the gun!
Down we dive spouting our flames from under,
Off with one helluva roar!
We live in fame or go down in flame,
Nothing'll stop the US Air Force!

Minds of men fashioned a crate of thunder
Sent it high into the blue
Hands of men blasted the world asunder,
How they live God only knew!
Souls of men dreaming of skies to conquer
Gave us wings ever to soar,
With scouts before and bombers galore,
Nothing can stop the US Air Force!

Here's a toast to the host of those
Who love the vastness of the sky,
To a friend we send the message
Of his brother men who fly.
We drink to those who gave their all of old,
Then down we roar
to score the rainbow's pot of gold.
A toast to the host of men we boast
the US Air Force.

Off we go into the wild sky yonder,
Keep the wings level and true!
If you'd live to be a gray haired wonder,
Keep your nose out of the blue!
Flying men guarding our nation's boarders,
We'll be there followed by more,
In echelon we carry on!
Nothing'll stop the US Air Force!

NOTE: The Army Air Corps uses this song, substituting "Army Air Corps" for "US Air Force".
