This chapter focuses on naval aviation in the Mediterranean. Of all the Navy's aviation officers, John Callan proved most committed to active operations in Italy. Given his close personal associations, long experience in the country, and sympathetic understanding of national priorities, Callan went to great lengths to assure that Americans behaved in a respectful manner and did not take their hosts for granted. As commanding officer, Callan dealt with a wide variety of issues. One related to the selection of officers for the new stations.
