The airfield was built during the early fall of 1918 as a forward operations base, and was used during the last days of the war by the United States First Army Air Service V Corps Observation Group during the Meuse-Argonne Offensive. Two squadrons of aircraft operated from the field, primarily taking aerial photography, performing battlefield adjustments and making artillery adjustments. It likely consisted of a few tents and perhaps some canvas and steel-tubing hangars. After the 11 November Armistice, the Group was reassigned to the Rhineland as part of the Third Army of Occupation and Parois Airdrome was turned over to the French Government.
Subsequently, the airfield was returned to agricultural use. Its exact location in the Parois area is undetermined.
