    Aviation and US Naval Aviation... Not quite enough room in the title block to fit it all in.

    Excerpts from the web site, http://www.usaww1.com/ US Air Service

    The web site commemorates all of US involvement in aviation operations during WW1. As they say, "2 1/2th years, 900+ kills, 71 aces"...

    WW1 marked America's first aerial combat operations. The US Air Service, US Naval Aviation and US Marine Aviation fought in France, England, Italy, Ireland, Germany and elsewhere during WW1.
    By the time WW1 ended, the forty-five US Air Service fighter, bomber and observation squadrons had participated in seven campaigns, claimed 781 airplanes and 73 observation balloons downed. They produced 71 aces of whom five had more than ten victories each. They dropped 140 tons of bombs in 150 bombing runs. And in exchange, they lost 289 airplanes, 48 balloons and 238 of their own men either killed or missing in action.
