The Air-Force is Part of the Navy/Army. The Marine Corps is part of the Navy.
First one is wrong. The first time the USMC saw combat was on the Barbary coast in 1804 against tripoli pirates. 2nd part, the AF used to be part of the Army and the Army only until 1947 when the USAF was created separate from the army.
