Example text

11 Franklin Roosevelt had formulated definite ideas about the offensive and defensive employment of naval aviation by 1919. Mitchell's efforts in 1919 to separate the air service from the army through congressional legislation failed. The National Defense Act of 1920 left the General Staff in control of the air service. Furthermore, the General Staff retained control over promotions, which was a tight rein over the airmen. Even though the National Defense Act recognized the air service as a combat arm of the army, put fliers in command of tactical units, and authorized flight pay at 50 percent of base pay, the hopes of those wanting a separate air force were crushed.

Roosevelt's election on November 8, 1932, ended the partisan political struggle for the presidency but started an internal political struggle for control of air power policy. Freely approaching their commander in chief, the army and navy involved Roosevelt in their rivalry from the very start. Impressed by Roosevelt's flight to Chicago, both services told the press on election day that they expected Roosevelt to make full use of their airplanes. The navy bragged about having several large-cabin planes that the president and his council could use.
