Fighter Intercepter Squadrons of Washington State

Here is a partial list of Cold War Fighter Intercepter Squadrons in Washington State. I found that there is no specific site that has all of these together, so, for your viewing pleasure, I present this list of Fighter Intercepter Squadrons that once served at Washington bases. (This is in no way a complete list, I will be adding to it as I get more information. If you have some to add, please let me know!) I also hope to add the years that they were assigned later. As a service to all, I am also including the other squdrons and wings that served.
