The Air Force reflects their Army Air Corps roots combined with the start of a new tradition of their own, which began on Jan. 18, 1949, when President Truman approved the distinctive Air Force blue uniform. The Air Force has several uniforms including the service dress, dress and battle dress uniforms, which, like the other services, have differing components and manner of dress, depending on the situation and the rank of the airman.
