The Ninetieth Aero Squadron American Expeditionary Forces

Author: Leland M. Carver
Publisher: Forgotten Books
ISBN: 1527846083
Release Date: 2017-10-27
Genre: History

Excerpt from The Ninetieth Aero Squadron, American Expeditionary Forces: A History of Its Activities During the World War, From Its Formation to Its Return to the United States This completed the primary organization of the enlisted part of the Squadron. Many changes were to take place in the course of the next year, but the foundation of the esprit, which was to be so greata factor in the Squadron's success on the front, was laid. Specialized training was necessary, but nearly all were by trade expert mechanics, who had volunteered for the work to which they had been assigned and who were enthusiastic over the prospect of doing their bit along the lines for which they were peculiarly fitted. It might be taken as an augury of success and as an indication of the adaptability of the 90th, that at this time every State of the Union was represented by one or more men. On September 30, under command of Lieutenant Hackett, the Squadron left San Antonio for Mineola, Long Island, where it arrived five days later. Good order, good health and good spirits marked the whole trip. On the night of October 5 the Squadron de trained, and early next morning hiked out to Field No. 2 of the Aviation Mobilization Camp, where they were quartered with the Headquarters of the First Provisional Wing in Barracks No. 5. Here they stayed for three weeks performing guard duty and fatigue work, and carrying on the work of organi zation, equipment and preparation for overseas duty. Recreation was provided in the form of frequent twenty-four hour passes to New York City and other towns in the neighborhood, so that the time did not pass too slowly. It should be put on record that after the 90th had departed from Mineola its example was held up to succeeding squadrons as one worthy of emulation.
