Everyone knows that the Air Force is the best of all military branches. But how many people know that the Air Force also has the coolest Reddit page? Compared to the other services, the Air Force Reddit page really highlights why we’re the Chair Force!

BLUF: I am not a Redditor. The only reason I know that term is because I have kids. That said, if I were a young person today and thinking of joining the military, the Air Force’s Reddit page would be a veritable treasure trove of information. Point of fact, Air Force Reddit will tell you that BLUF stands for “bottom line up front.” Now you know.


What Is Air Force Reddit?

According to Wikipedia, Reddit is an American social news aggregation, web content rating, and discussion website. That means that users submit their own posts and comments and other people upvote or downvote them. Vote counts determine where these posts and comments wind up in the pecking order. I know that is a gross oversimplification, but I don’t have the space to write a book here.

As Reddit says, “Dive into anything.” So, I dove into r/Air Force. The r/ designation is to show the Air Force page is a subreddit: a whole community dedicated to nothing but the USAF. The Army, Navy, and Marine Corps also have their own subreddits, but the Air Force page is so much more populated than any of their pages.

Compare the front page of the Army Reddit to the Air Force Reddit:

The first thing you notice is how much better the Air Force Reddit page is than the Army’s. Much like the services themselves. Granted, the Army’s page has more members than the Air Force’s, but that can be explained by the sheer difference in branch size. Besides, we ALL KNOW that on the Air Force’s page there has plenty of Army guys lurking and checking out the color of the grass. Ah, but the grass is always greener over the septic tank, as Erma Bombeck used to say. If you don’t know who that is, her books are available at your local library. Check them out.
