One of the Doolittle B-25 aircraft takes off from the deck of the USS Hornet in April 1942, to bomb mainland Japan. Lt. Gen. Raymond V. Mason, deputy chief of staff, G-4, said at the beginning of World War II, the Army did some out-of-the-box thinking. B-25s were stripped down to conserve fuel and were sent to bomb mainland Japan in the Doolittle Raid. Mason spoke at AUSA's "Sustaining Force 2025" seminar in Arlington, Va., May 20, 2014.
