Know your heritage, live the mission: 100 years of 48th Squadron lineage

In the period of peace that followed World War II, the aircraft and missions of the 48th changed many times. The 48th Fighter Squadron Association was formed in 1975 to keep the heritage of the 48th Pursuit and Fighter Squadron alive and relevant to the current 48th members. This plaque, featuring the control wheel from a P-38 Lightning, recorded the presidents of the Association. (U.S Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Beaux Hebert)
