His patriotism, idealism, and desire for adventure had motivated him to volunteer just weeks before the U.S. declared war against Germany in April 1917. Holt ardently supported the war effort, and when his six-month contract with the AAFS was completed, he enlisted in the American Air Service where he won his pilot's wings, then applied for observer training. Holt was assigned as an observer-bombardier-gunner with the famed 20th Aero Squadron of the American 1st Daylight Bombardment Group, which dropped more bombs than any other American squadron at the front in World War I. He served near Verdun during the French summer offensive of 1917 where he was gassed; he later was awarded the French 'Croix de Guerre'." Very minor edge wear on covers.
