Here's What The USAF Grew From Uncle Sam's war birds will be 45 years old on tomorrow and the Armed Services will celebrate the birthday at Pt. Sam Houston, Te,x. Returning to take part in the celebration will be Maj.-Gen. Benjamin D. Foulois (ret.), who as a youiitf second lieutenant started it all when he flew the government's first plane (Wright A-1909.1 on March 2, 1010. Foulois' nine enlisted men and one airplane grew into the massive U. S. Air Force, but it wasn't easy. Ay a young Signal Corp*, officer, Foulois was ordered to Ft' Sam Houston with instructions to teach himself how to fly. He had been allotted $150 to main- lain the airplane. The repair bills alone during the first four months exhausted the appropriation, so Foulois dug into his own pocket for $300 to help cover the cost of new material. In addition to his personal money, Foulois had help and material from plumbers, carpenters, painters and blacksmiths at the base. Despite many setbacks, Foulois continued to fly and improve the lone airplane. But more important was the impetus Foulois' experiments gave to aviation, In 1911 the U. S. appropriated $125,000 for military aviation. Contrast that with expected expenditures of $15,600,000,000 during 1956.
