The 99th Squadron was originally organized in 1917 as the 99th Aero Squad- ron at Kelly AAF, Texas.

It served in France during World War I. It was awarded campaign streamers for the campaigns designated Lorraine, Alsace, St. Mihiel, and Meuse-Argonne.

Demobilized in June 1919, it was reconstituted a month later as the 99th Corps Observation Squadron. On March 1935 it was redesignated the 99th Bombardment Squadron.
