    World War I: 9th Aero Squadron Sterling Silver Squadron Pin. 1" in diameter, pin-back, marked "Sterling". Organized on June 14, 1917, at Camp Kelly, Texas, the squadron was stationed at Amanty, France, during World War I, where it primarily flew night reconnaissance missions. The squadron saw its first combat during the Saint Mihiel Offensive in September 1918 and participated in the Meuse-Argonne Offensive, protecting the Lorraine sector during the war. After the war, the squadron was part of the Allied occupation forces in Germany. From August 1919 to April 1920, the 9th Aero Squadron conducted patrols of the U.S.-Mexico border. Fine.
