UNIVERSITY MEN WERE CITED
Mitchell, Roosevelt and Campbell Named In Army Orders.
Recent citations of the American and French Armies contain the names of three University men. Captain John Mitchell '18, of the 95th Aero Squadron is cited, posthumously, by the U. S. Department for "extraordinary heroism in action." He was killed during an aerial combat against superior numbers, after having downed an enemy biplane, near Beaumont on May 27, 1918.
Lieutenant Quentin Roosevelt '19, and Captain Douglas Campbell '17, are mentioned in French Army citations. Lieutenant Roosevelt is referred to as "an excellent pilot and scout, possessing the highest qualities of courage and devotion to duty." The order concludes "He gloriously fell in the course of an aerial combat on July 14, 1918."
Captain Campbell was the first American "Ace" and has been previously cited ten times. He is also an officer of the Legion of Honor.
