Colonel M. Davidson had been Mitchell's commanding officer earlier in his career when, as a captain, Mitchell had been involved in a friendly fire incident. Mitchell had piloted a jet fighter and had been given confirmation on a target, but as he fired his weapons, he lost confirmation, and it was too late to save the convoy of refugees that was destroyed. Driven by guilt and grief, Mitchell considered resigning his commission, but Colonel Davidson tried to reassure him that he was not responsible.
