From the earliest era of human flight, the United States Military had a desire to take to the skies to see how flight could be leveraged in combat. The United States Army Air Corps was formed as a unit within the United States Army prior to World War I. This continued to be the situation for the precursor to the US Air Force until after World War II.
Facing a Cold War with the Soviet Union and the need to strike anywhere on the globe, the importance of a separate Air Force became obvious in the late 1940s. In 1947, Congress passed the National Security Act of 1947 to formally establish the United States Air Force. The Air Force is housed in the Department of the Air Force within the Department of Defense.
The obverse side of the 2021 2.5 oz Silver US Mint Air Force Medal features a depiction of US Air Force fighters. In the foreground, you will notice the image of a pilot within the cockpit of an Air Force fighter. In the background, there are F-22 fighters flashing across the sky.
On the reverse field of 2021 Silver US Mint Air Force Medals is an image of the spires at the Air Force Memorial. The design element includes members of the US Air Force Honor Guard standing watch near the Air Force Memorial.
