Welcome to Slobberin Wolfhounds
The Wolfhounds squadron traces its history from the 32nd Pursuit Squadron at Kelly Field, Texas, constituted on December 1939. After the attack on Pearl Harbor, the 32 squadron flew daily intercept and submarine missions throughout the Caribbean. In the waning years of World War II the unit was reassigned to France Field, Panama, to defend the Panama Canal Zone.
In 1954 the Dutch government accepted the American offer to deploy a squadron of combat aircraft to the Netherlands to contribute to Dutch air defense within the context of NATO. The home base of the squadron became Soesterberg Air Base wich is also known as Camp New Amsterdam. Over the years the Wolfhounds flew and maintained a variety of fighters.
With the end of the Cold War a major force draw down occurred in Europe, the USAF reduced its fighter force structure. These changes affected the 32nd Fighter Squadron (FS) and the squadron was redesigned the 32nd Air Operations Squadron (AOS) and reassigned to Ramstein Air Base in Germany. On the 1st of November 2005 the USAF inactivated the 32nd Air Operations Squadron, as from that day the ties with the Wolfhounds and its symbol are cut.
