A remastered illustration of the insignia for the 79th Bombardment Squadron from World War 2

Activated in January 1941 as the 79th Bombardment Squadron and equipped with Douglas A-20 Havoc light bombers. Following the attack on Pearl Harbor the squadron began to fly antisubmarine patrols off the Atlantic coast and over the Caribbean Sea, becoming the 8th Antisubmarine Squadron.

After the Navy assumed the unit's mission, it moved to New Mexico, where it formed the cadre for and trained as a Consolidated B-24 Liberator unit, and deployed with its planes to the European Theater of Operations. It was briefly withdrawn from combat when the squadron converted to Boeing B-17 Flying Fortresses, and then continued combat with the 487th Bombardment Group. Following V-E Day it returned to Drew Field, Florida, where it was inactivated on 7 November 1945.

Printed on 80lb matte cover stock and sent in a flat mailer.
