Memories For This Unit

Other Memories
"Perry H. Aldrich, 1st Lieutenant, Air Service Observer 135th Aero Squadron. For extraordinary heroism in action near St. Mihiel, France, October 29, 1918. He as an observer, with 1st Lieutenant E. C. Landen, volunteered and went on an important mission for the corps commander without the unusual protection. Forced to fly at an altitude of 1000 meters because of poor visibility soon after crossing the line they encountered an enemy Rumpler plane and force it to the ground. On returning, they attacked another Rumpler and drove it off. After completing their mission and seeing an enemy observation tower on Lake Lachaussee, they re-entered enemy territory and fired upon it. Immediately attacked by seven enemy planes (Fokker type), a combat followed, in which Lieutenant Aldrich was mortally wounded."
