Initial 1947 USAF Major Commands

"In January 1946, Generals Eisenhower and Spaatz agreed on an Air Force organization consisting of the following major commands: the Strategic Air Command, the Air Defense Command, the Tactical Air Command, the Air Transport Command and the supporting Air Technical Service Command, Air Training Command, the Air University, and the Air Force Center." (AAF: The Official Guide to the Army Air Forces)

This category is for both the initial 1947 USAF Major Command and the 1951 Air Defense Command which reorganized in 1968 when Aerospace Defense Command was designated (cf. the 1957 North American Air Defense Command renamed with "Aerospace" in 1981).
