Summary Mitchell, now known as the "Father of the U.S. Air Force," fought against the short-sightedness of top military leaders regarding air power after World War I. He went on to embarrass the Navy by proving that aircraft could indeed sink destroyers, which had been thought impossible. He was ultimately court-martialed for insubordination, and his contributions were grudgingly acknowledged after his death.
