The 325th Mission Support Squadron has a long and honorable history. First activated on June 9, 1948, at Hamilton Air Force Base, Calif., the 325th Base Services Squadron was assigned to the Air Base Group, subordinate to the 325th Fighter Wing. The wing moved to Moses Lake Air Force Base, Wash., on Nov. 26, 1948 and the 325th BSS made the move as well. The squadron was deactivated on March 10, 1950, but was reconstituted and redesignated the 325th Mission Support Squadron on Aug. 15, 1988 at Tyndall AFB, Fla., as part of the Air Force' program to realign certain combat support group functions, and again supported the 325th Fighter Wing. The Manpower and Organization Flight was added to the squadron in October 2004 as part of a Headquarters, Air Force-directed merger between personnel and manpower. During the same time, the career assistance advisor position was repositioned to the squadron and the FTAC was realigned directly under the CAA. The 325th MSS continues to provide support to the 325th FW by orchestrating military and civilian personnel programs, base education, manpower and organization, family support, the ALS, and the FTAC. This unit is uniquely posed to prepare our future leaders, support their family members and coordinate personnel actions in support of global contingencies for the 325th Fighter Wing.

The 325th MSS emblem is symbolic of the squadron's multifaceted support functions. Ultramarine azure and Air Force yellow are used in the design of the 325th Mission Support Squadron emblem. The color yellow signifies the sun; and represents the constancy, solidarity, and excellence required to perform our squadron mission. The yellow lightning bolt symbolizes both the speed and urgency with which we vow to act. The six white stars depict the unblemished integrity of the personnel within the unit. The 325th Mission Support Squadron emblem truly defines our personnel who are "Committed to Excellence" and exhibit "PRIDE in Everything We Do!"
