Memoir Summary: 
The life of a U.S. Naval Aviation Pilot serving in France in World War I is vividly recounted in this recollection by Joseph C. Cline. It is from a never-before-published series of interviews with early naval aviators conducted by the U.S. Naval Institute in the 1960s and 1970s, capturing these irreplaceable memories while these men were still alive. Cline spoke with U.S. Naval Institute interviewer Commander Etta-Belle Kitchen, USN (Ret.), in Coronado, California, on 14 September 1969.
