This is why I'm absolutely sure that HG Wells is from the future!

I don't think it's just a Navy/Air Force issue. I can imagine the Navy developing the technology needed for troop carriers, etc, and the Air Force developing smaller, faster, fighter ships, and the Marines & Army gearing up for lunar conflicts, but I can't envision any one of these overseeing all space-based conflict. Perhaps there would be an entirely new branch--a USOF (orbital force) drawn from useful members of the other branches.
