Untitled[edit]

Peter Geren is now the Acting Secretary

Shouldn't this be "Secretary of the United States Air Force" or just "Secretary of the Air Force"? Paul 03:07, 20 December 2005 (UTC)

His title is "Secretary of the Air Force" [1], but since wikipedia is not limited to the United States, I think, that for clarification, "United States" should be part of the article. Perhaps "Secretary of the United States Air Force" might be better. --rogerd 04:47, 20 December 2005 (UTC)

"Served under" categorization[edit]

Since the Secertary of the Air Force falls under the Secretary of Defense, the former directly serves the latter. Thus should we list the Secretary of Defense at the time under "Served under" rather than the President? The military revovles around reporting to your direct superior, even though the President is more widely known and of course the Commander in Chief. Minutiaman 22:43, 9 August 2006 (UTC)

Why not "Administration(s) served under" instead?RicJac (talk) 20:19, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

Is the USAF and the Department of Air Force the same?[edit]

Please see Talk:United States Air Force if you are interested in this matter - whether there should be two articles or one. -- John Broughton (♫♫) 02:29, 12 February 2007 (UTC)

Clarification needed[edit]

This sentence: "The Secretary of the Air Force is appointed from civilian life by the President" may be misconstrued as the appointment is for life. I'm pretty sure this is not the case, thus it should be clarified. I don't know enough about the topic to make the changes, though. GregCovey (talk) 19:33, 27 April 2011 (UTC)
