RE US Army Air Forces - why plural?

Possibly, because right in the middle of WW2, the US Army Air CORPS changed it's name to US Army Air FORCE...and then two years AFTER WW2, in 1947, the US Army Air Force separated from the US Army and became it's own separate branch of service; the USAF. So, from 1941 thru 1947, there were THREE US Air Forces! Any US serviceman being discharged, promoted, using his GI bill to purchase a house, etc. may have joined the US Army Air CORPS in 1941, fought WW2 while a member of the US Army Air FORCE...then did his "twenty years" and retired from the US Air Force in 1961.
