    What is the Constitutional authority for Congress to finance the United States Air Force?

    The Marines are Dept of the Navy. So it's all good.

    It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

    Though the Constitution only mentions them maintaining a Navy, They can fund a military per the Constitution for 2 years however they see fit, but must reauthorize it every 2 years as well which they do
