Response to A Question

There were quite a few Americans who chose to remain in the RAF after the US entered the war. There were also a lot of delayed changeovers -- i.e. many pilots chose to complete their tours before transferring, etc.

It wasn't mandatory although the allure of serving in ones own military certainly carried some weight. There's also the huge difference in pay between USAAF and RAF.
