Here is one of my latest pickups.  An unknown image taken from an album   NOT BY ME! of a ww1 Pilot with what appears to be three war service chevrons on his sleeve. He has wings on and a nice DSC!. No ID though. Help me out!

Photo may have been taken at Carlstrom Field Florida. As other images were from there.  Thanks in advance!  Ryan

It has been suggested to me that this is David McKelvey Peterson who was an instructer in Florida in the 1918 1919 Period at Dorr Field about three hours away from Carlstrom Field where this picture was taken.  Peterson was awarded the DSC twice in France and served as an ambulance driver prior to the US joining the fight. He was killed in a flying accident in 1919.  Let me know your thoughts guys.  Ryan

Found another cool picture torn from another Carlstrom Field Photo Album.  Looks to be Peterson receiving his DSC!
