A remastered illustration of the insignia for the 21st Bombardment Squadron from World War 2

The 21st Bombardment Squadron is an inactive United States Air Force unit. Its last assignment was with the 501st Bombardment Group, based at Northwest Field, Guam in the Mariana Islands. It was inactivated on 10 June 1946.

The 21st Bombardment Squadron was one of the first squadrons to make a land-based attack on the Japanese home islands on 18 July 1943, flying B-24 Liberators. This raid, against Shimushu and Paramushiru in the Kuril Islands, caused little or no damage, but was only the first of a long series of attacks on Japan from the north.

Inactivated in 1943; the 21st later was reorganized as a B-29 Superfortress Bomb Squadron and engaged in combat over Japan in 1945.
