Established as a unit of the Air Service of United States Army, the 94th Aero Squadron was tasked with engaging and destroying enemy forces, equipment, defenses or installations. Still in existence today, 94th Aero Squadron has a long, rich history dating back to its humble beginnings in Texas on August 20, 1917 during World War I.

As the first American squadron in operation, the aviators were able to design the logo representing their squadron, which consisted of Uncle Sam’s hat going through a ring. The design – a departure of the phrase tossing one’s “hat in the ring” – was intended to honor the United States entry into the war.

The 94th Aero Squadron claimed the first two victories held by an American unit in World War I. With several flying aces, like Eddie Rickenbacker who was the most victorious 94th pilot ever, the squadron won honors for 11 major engagements by the end of the war. Additionally, it was awarded the Croix de Guerre with Palm. The squadron stood out in subsequent battles, receiving two Distinguished Unit Citations and 14 campaign honors in World War II.
