39th Fighter Squadron, World War II
About the 39th Association

After several years of informally organized gatherings of former WW II personnel of the 39th Fighter Squadron, a set of By Laws were drawn up and adopted in 1986. The formal 39th Association is dedicated to finding and keeping contact with all of those men that once were a part of the 39th Squadron. Though the initial focus was on finding WW II "39ers", today the Association has a roster of veterans and active duty personnel from WWII to today as well as friends and family members. We welcome all who wish to honor the 39th's history.
