The "Doghouse" began as the 325th Fighter Control Squadron in April 1943. In December 1943, the unit moved to North Africa to support the operations of the 325th FW and other American and allied flying units. Moving its radar with the front lines, the squadron saw action throughout the Mediterranean and Southern Europe and earned battle streamers for Rome, 1944; Southern France, 1944; and the Rhineland, 1945.  Since the German air threat had effectively halted, the squadron disbanded in early 1945.

The squadron finds its functional Tyndall roots back in 1947, when the Interceptor Weapons schoolhouse was established. The USAF has conducted controller training at Tyndall since that time, though enduring numerous mergers and name changes. The many aspects of controller training were consolidated into the 337th Training Squadron in the mid-90s. That unit was again re-designated as the 325th Air Control Squadron in 2001. In 2012, the 325th Air Control Squadron was once again re-designated as the 337th Air Control Squadron to remain part of Air Education and Training Command through the 33rd Operations Group, 33rd Fighter Wing, Eglin AFB, Florida.

Imperio et Moderatio is Latin for “Command and Control.”


Today, the Doghouse trains students to provide battle management command and control in subjects ranging from friendly and enemy aircraft capabilities and limitations, defensive and offensive counter air operations, close air support, personnel recovery, suppression of enemy air defenses, tactical control of high-performance aircraft, and integrated crew employment in theater level campaign scenarios. In the warfighting environment, all battlespace assets must come together in order to accomplish the mission and meet Commander’s intent. The warfighting professionals who synchronize and harmonize those elements of combat power come from the 337th ACS.
