Mitchell goes to war

First off I know nothing about cameras but I happened across your site and thought maybe someone here could help me. I have two photographs of a Mitchell camera and I am not sure what camera it is. The only clues I have are both photos are signed Ben Parker '43 and hanging from the tripod is what I am guessing is a bag with the word FAXON stenciled on it. So I can date the photo to 1943, the man in the photo is Ben Parker, the men are wearing US Army Air Corps uniforms and the bag with FAXON. A search of the Internet for Ben Parker pulls up Uncle Ben, Spider-Man's uncle and a director Ben Parker. Now I doubt a director would be enlisted as a Sargeant so I don't think either one is this Ben Parker. Anyway I would be interested in finding out more about this camera or any other help I can get. Thank you for the cool site.
