Lieutenant Andrew J. LaBoiteaux completed his training at the School of Bombardment in Aulnat, France in on December 2, 1918, almost three weeks after the signing of the Armistice.  On December 6, he received orders to report for duty with the 96th Aero Squadron.  However, by January 10, the 96th had begun to demobilize and LaBoiteaux returned to the United States in the spring of 1919, never having flown in combat.
