USAFSS Misawa History Page

The USAFSS Misawa website contains a well documented history page. The United States Air Force Security Service (USAFSS) was the Air Force intelligence from 1948 until 1979. After some name changes, the service is currently known as the Air Force Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Agency (AF ISR). I've published a post, earlier this month, on the USAFSS Silent Wariors and the shootdown of one of their C-130's.

The Misawa history page contains three excellent pdf documents: USAF Intelligence History Timeline brings the complete story from the USAFSS in 1948 to the AF ISR Agency in 2008, USAFSS - An Enlisted Command about its unique enlisted force, and the NSA 50th Anniversary publication about the National Security Agency's history between 1952 and 2002. These extensive documents provide a detailed overview on Signals and Electronic Intelligence in the US Air force and NSA.
