Did the pilots during World War 2 that flew off the navy carriers fall under the army air corp or where they navy?
The Navy has always flown its own aircraft on aircraft carriers, since the first carrier was commissioned March 20th, 1922. There have been other types of aircraft flown on/off carriers by the army, but none of them were ever considered to be stationed on a carrier.

I think it may have been Jimmy Doolittle. . It was General Henry Harley "Hap" Arnold.
After aerial bombardment on battleships, it seemed big gunned castles were obsolete. If a couple of aircraft can sink a ship like the Musashi (HIJMS, WWII), aircraft carriers …became the most powerful ship, long range. However, the US Navy isn't giving up: A handful of battleships remain in the US Navy's arsenal.. ___________________________________________________________________. While the submarine finally proved itself in World War 1, the carrier missed its chance, and it could be argued that the Japanese did the United States a favor by sinking their battleships at Pearl Harbor. Even after the British success at Taranto a year earlier, the battleship was still considered the most important warship in the USN. After Pearl Harbor, newer and better battleships were built, but many more carriers were built. No more chivalrous battleship lines. No more "crossing the T." The Battle of Java Sea in 1942 was the last time that an all-ship battle would be fought. The shift was gradual, but the writing was on the wall. The battleship still had value for shore bombardment and and fleet security, but the carrier would decide future sea battles. Great Britain and Japan were the only two countries to operate carriers in World War 1, although they did not see action. These countries had a greater appreciation of naval air power in World War 2, and they were the first to use it successfully. The US Navy had to learn the hard way, but they learned.
Admiral Ernest King was the US top naval officer. Admiral Chester Nimitz was the top Pacific naval officer.
Ground crews were often referred to as "grease monkeys."
the United States Armed Forces or, generically, the US Military. All are part of the Department of Defense (formerly, the Department of War and Department of the Navy).
Who in 1941 was an General in the Army Air Corp as a pilot and who had multiple wives and was possibly Mormon during World War 2?
No one, at least as far as the "Mormon" part of this question is concerned. You couldn't be Mormon in the early 1940's and have more than one wife. That was stopped in 1890. H…ope that's helpful.
interesting question. they fall under the navy, not the airforce.

US Navy Aircraft Carriers normally operated US Navy aircraft flown by US Navy pilots; however sometimes during WW2 these aircraft carriers had US Army Air Force or US Marine C…orps aircraft on-board to be flown-off by Army or Marine pilots. This was for ferrying operations. These aircraft would take off from the carriers but land on an airfield. Army pilots were not trained to land on carriers, neither were the Army aircraft equipped for carrier landings. US Marine pilots & Marine aircraft could operate from carriers if necessary, until they could be established at an airfield.
No but army pilots took army B25 bombers off of the the deck of the navy aircraft carrier Hornet to bomb the homeland of the Japanese in April of 1942.
they both had to fight the enemy in WW1 and WW2
Former U.S. President and U.S. Naval Aviator George H.W. Bush (Bush Sr.) having qualified at the age of 18, was commissioned an Ensign in the USNR on June 9, 1943, just 3 da…ys before his 19th birthday, after completing the 10-month naval aviation course. Bush was the youngest overall Naval Aviator in WWII up to that date; just over a month later, on July 16, 1943, Chuck Downey was also commissioned as an Ensign, making him the youngest Naval Aviator of WWII, at 18yrs, 11 months, 14 days old.
Yes. In fact, they were and are the second largest air force in the world. However, I do not recall that it actually had a navy.
