A remastered illustration of the insignia for the 75th Bombardment Squadron from World War 2

Established as a pre-World War II GHQAF bombardment squadron, it was equipped with Douglas B-18 Bolos and early-model Martin B-26 Marauders. After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, the squadron was engaged in anti-submarine operations over the mid-Atlantic coast. It was reassigned to the Third Air Force, but it deployed with the Fifth Air Force in Australia in 1942 as part of the re-equipping of that command, following the 1941–1942 Battle of the Philippines.

The squadron attacked enemy forces in the Philippines during early 1945 as part of the liberation from Japanese control; it continued combat missions until the Japanese capitulation in August 1945 and became part of Fifth Air Force in Occupied Japan in 1946 before being demobilized and inactivated in May 1946.
