Dr. Charles O'Connell, Director, Air Force Historical Research Agency

Last week marked the death of a great, if largely forgotten, American. Robert Hite was a co-pilot in the legendary Doolittle's bombing raid over Tokyo in the midst of World War II.

Its director, Charles O'Connell, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive with more of what the agency does.
