State of US Navy and Air Force in 1941?

Hi Indy and crew, great work as always. Might be a question for closer to December, but what was the state (manpower, equipment, training, readiness etc.) of the US Navy and Air Force in the summer of '41? Additionally, ignoring what we know will happen in a few months, would the Navy and Air Force be in a position to put up a good fight at this moment if they weren’t to be taken by surprise?
