During the first half of the century, this military branch would participate in both World Wars, initially serving as an intelligence entity, but then playing an important role in combat.

During the World War II, Air division of the US Army proved its effectiveness. Almost 68,000 US men died fighting in their airplanes. Finally, in 1946, following a line of name changes and organizational restructurings, the unit became separate as US Air Force.
