"A squadron commander who sits in his tent and gives orders and does not fly, though he may have the brains of Solomon, will never get the results that a man will, who, day in and day out, leads his patrols over the line and infuses into his pilots the 'espirit de corps.'" Brig. Gen. William "Billy" Mitchell, Assistant Chief, U.S. Army Air Service
