F/A-22 Raptor A pair of "yellow shirts" signals the launch of a U.S. Navy F/A-18 Hornet from the aircraft carrier USS George Washington off the coast of Italy. An AH-64A Apache helicopter gets a last-minute check from U.S. Army pilots at Ft. Rucker, Ala.

These are among the more than 300 photographs featured in a new, 250-page hardcover book titled A Day In The Life Of The United States Armed Forces, published by HarperCollins. Boeing is the sole sponsor of the book, which takes a visual look at daily life for the men and women of the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard. These services are some of Boeing's biggest customers.
