The 94th’s training and combat operations offer a rare collection of historical data. Since the 94th was America’s first Pursuit Squadron, it confronted situations and difficulties unique to its historical position. The experience gained during independent operations with the French VIII Army was invaluable to the survival of their predecessors. The 94th’s reactions and resolutions became the norm for American pursuit squadrons, in the skies of the First World War.
