He reported to the 13th Aero Squadron on 29 August 1918. On 13 September, he won his first three victories in a melee in which he continued his attack after his guns jammed. He cleared them in time to rescue his Flight Commander from enemy attack. The feat was good for a DFC. He would score three more times, his last win coming one week before the armistice ended the war.
