People say that, but then deny that having the Air Force Emblem on a book about the history of the USAF makes it appear as if the USAF is promoting this book over all other books on the history of the Air Force. What is the difference?

The difference is that it's ok for the Air Force, or any branch, to endorse a history book, or a novel, or a movie. It's not ok to endorse a religion. endorsing a religion is one step towards a state religion.

But the Air Force is not promoting the book, the private publisher simply pasted the emblem on the dust cover for the book - I see the bibles the same way. The private publisher simply put the emblems on the books to sell them. It does not mean that the military is endorsing any religion. IMO, it is making a mountain out of nothing.
