    In Vietnam, close air support was ALWAYS Navy or Marines pilots. AF was known for defining “close” with 5000 ft or so.

    Thst may be. My last tour in Afghanistan, the Marine unit I was posted to was very fond of saying "Sorry about giving you sh*t about the chair force sir, could you please call in the A-10s!"

    After 14 years in, most of those being in a "joint" (multi-service) environment. I came away with the following:

    USAF and USMC: Worked well together. Marines were always scrounging for **** they did not have, and the USAF always had a surplus. (Like M995 and SLAP ammo) Take care of your Marines and hook them up with sh*t they were needing and they would go to the ends of the earth for you. One of the biggest honors (to me) was when they gave me a few sets of USMC digi-cams (with a USAF tape, so I was not impersonating a Marine), and a couple of USMC rucks.
    "Here sir, wear these, it would suck a$$ if you got sent home."

    Must have been the 64 color crayola snack packs I kept giving them..

    Why does the Navy always have Marines on board ships?

    So the sailors would have someone to dance with.

    USAF to the offense...

    ...enjoy from a 1961-65 AP who carried a M-1 carbine and a left over Colt.45...plus I got a good conduct medal for never having a B-47 bomber or a ATLAS missile stolen while I guarded them

    I think, from observation and speaking with servicemen from various branches, that the services today are much more cooperative, up and down the ranks than in my time. Perhaps because of the overall voluntary nature of the ranks as opposed to the a voluntary nature of the a Marine Corps/Navy vs the Army in years gone by. Obviously, the AF has evolved mission wise too.

    Sidenote, my Dad was Army, first NY National Guard (69th Reg) then regular Army in WWII. Two older brothers in the a Navy, both aboard Carriers (USS Hornet and USS Wasp) during Korea, third older brother was NY ANG and me, obviously, the Corps.

    The crap really flew freely in my house but EVERYONE served somewhere.
