April is an important month for the Air Force, because on April 14, American celebrate the birthday of the Air Force Reserve. The Air Force Reserve has the duty to respond quickly to emergencies when they occur, and many pilots, mechanics, and other Air Force members form a part of the reserve. Here is more information on celebrating the birthday of the Air Force Reserve.
About the Air Force Reserves Birthday
The Air Force Reserve has been around since 1916. In that year, Congress passed the National Defense Act, which allowed the Air Force to become a fledgling branch of the military. In those days, planes were brand new, and flying in planes was exceptionally dangerous. Planes became important in both World War I and World War II, and experienced pilots determined the outcome of several battles. If there had been no planes or pilots, it would have been very difficult for the United States to win either war.
The Air Force Reserve has nearly 500 planes for pilots to use. It takes less than 72 hours for the reserve to mobilize, and be ready for a mission. Some of the missions the reserve has been on in the past include rescue missions after a natural disaster such as a hurricane, or disaster relief. Disaster relief includes taking food, water, and other supplies to areas devastated by war, famine, or natural disasters.
You can celebrate the birthday of the Air Force Reserves by proudly flying your American flag, as well as the Air Force or Air Force Reserves flags. If you need more information, we’d love to help.
