The United States Air Force became a separate military service on September 18, 1947 with the implementation of the National Security Act of 1947. The Act created the United States Department of Defense, which was composed of the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, and a newly created Air Force. Prior to 1947, aviation stood under both the Army for land-based operations and the Navy and Marine Corps for sea-based operations.
