ForewordLike all chronologies, bibliographies, and encyclopedias,
CombatSquadrons
of
the Air Force, World War
11,
serves a very special historicalfunction. It traces the lineage of each Army
Air
Corps and
U.
S.
Air
Forcecombat squadron in World War I1 and
afterward
to
1963,
the fiftieth anni-
versary
of the 1st Aero Squadron. It
is
a
concise official
record
of thoseunits: their assignments, stations, aircraft, and decorations. But it
is
morethan that.
As
an important
source
of ready information, this volume not onlyserves
as
a reference
tool
for historians and researchers; but
it
also providescommanders with a corporate memory of
vital
statistics. With these
facts,
a unit documents its heritage, the basis for unit
esprit de
corps.
Originally this volume had been printed in
1969.
Its
worth
has beenproven, and the demand for it has been great. With this reprint, it
will
con-tinue
to
serve the United States
Air
Force in
all
quarters in years
to
come.
