General Billy Mitchell was an Army officer who assisted General John J. Pershing in forming the American Expeditionary Forces’ aviation program. This program later became the United States Air Force.

He advocated looking and thinking ahead. Mitchell personified bold imagination and clear vision which has historically been the hallmark of America’s greatest military airmen.
