One on my favorite WW2 storys was the first US fighter squadron ariving in the UK and meeting it RAF counterparts

The yanks decided to play a game on the brits so had all the Americans with German last names lineup 1st for introduction.

So they start the intro and German after German named American pilot is introduced

Final one of the Brit's exclaimed

“Bloody Hell! ..we got the bloody Luftwaffe!

Long-time rumor about the US Air Force that they jokingly called it the Luftwaffe even after WW2 due to the many German-Americans in command positions.
