    The U.S. Army Air Corps (USAAC)
    (The Wild Blue Yonder)

    By Robert Crawford

    Off we go into the wild blue yonder, Climbing high into the sun;
    Here they come zooming to meet our thunder,
    At 'em boys, give 'er the gun (give 'er the gun now!)
    Down we dive sprouting our flame from under
    Off with one helluva roar!
    We live in fame or go down in flame, hey!
    Nothing 'll stop the Army Air Corps!

    Minds of men fashioned a crate of thunder,
    Sent it high into the blue;
    Hands of men blasted the world asunder;
    How they lived god only knew!
    Souls of men dreaming of skies to conquer
    Gave us wings, ever to soar!
    With scouts before and bombers galore, hey!
    Nothing 'll stop the Army Air Corps!

    Here's a toast to the host
    Of those who love the vastness of the sky,
    To a friend we will send a message of his brothermen who fly
    We drink to those who gave their all of old,
    Then down we roar to score the rainbow's pot of gold
    A toast to the host of men we boast, the Army Air Corps!

    Off we go into the wild sky yonder,
    Keep the wings level and true.
    If you'd live to be a grey-haired wonder
    Keep the nose out of the blue!
    Flying men guarding the nation's border,
    We'll be there, followed by more!
    In echelon we carry on, hey!
    Nothing 'll stop the Army Air Corps!

    Memorial Day 29 May 2000
    In memory of my father Second Lieutenant Edward Douglas Kroeger
