Covering Air Force Magazine

Adam J. Hebert

The first issue with our current (and final) name, Air Force Magazine, left, arrived in December 1942. We reported on World War II, as it happened. June 1946, center, was the last issue published by the Army. The official service journal of the US Army Air Forces then transferred to the brand-new Air Force Association. July 1946, was the first issue published by AFA. Our association was five months old; the US Air Force did not yet exist.
