The 95th FIS was transferred from SAC to ADC at Grenier AFB in August 1949 with F-51Ds.  It was, however, deactivated two months later in October.  In November 1952 the 95th FIS was reactivated at Andrews AFB with F-94Bs, replacing the 121st FIS of the District of Columbia ANG.  In 1953 it transitioned into F-86Ds and subsequently into F-86Ls in April 1957.  In February 1958 the squadron received F-102As.  On 17 July 1959 the 95th transitioned into F-106A's while still at Andrews AFB, MD and then on 1 July 1963 moved from Andrews AFB to Dover AFB.  On 31 January 1973 the squadron was deactivated; however, the unit designation was reactivated at Tyndall AFB in September 1974 when the T-33 Flying Training Squadron was re-designated the 95th FITS.

F-106s were assigned to 95th FIS at Andrews AFB MD from 17 July 1959 to 01 July 1963. The 95th FIS then moved to Dover AFB DE on 01 July 1963 and served there until inactivation on 31 Jan 1973. A total of 55 aircraft were assigned with 4 losses.

The 95th FIS deployed for this mission arriving in Korea on 15 Nov 1969, relieving the 94th FIS currently there, and remained until 1 May 1970. The 95th was the last F-106 unit to deploy to Korea.

Due to tensions of the USS Pueblo incident of 23 Jan 1968, and the shoot-down of an EC-121 Constellation on 15 Apr 1969 by North Korea, several F-106 Delta Dart FIS units had the distinction of flying across the Pacific ocean for deployments to Osan AB, South Korea as part of the Korean buildup stemming from those two incidents. These Sixes flew air defence over the country and shotgun for EC-121 Constellation's still flying.

The first F-106's were deployed from the 318th FIS McChord AFB in Feb 1968, officially arriving for deployment on 22 Mar 1968. During the flight they conducted the first in-flight refueling of an F-106 as they were en-route to Korea. The 318th remained until Dec 1968, when the personnel were swapped out with personnel from the 48th FIS, Langley VA, but the 318th aircraft remained. The 48th did not bring aircraft or equipment, rather took over 318th assets. Joining the 48th FIS was the 71st FIS out of Malmstrom AFB MT, arriving in Dec 1968, to assist the 48th FIS who remained. The 71st FIS brought their Sixes making this a joint 2-unit effort all part of the on-going plan to swap F-106 assets as part of the Korean buildup. The 48th with their 318th aircraft, and the 71st equipment, personnel and their aircraft remained at Osan AB until Jun 1969 when they were replaced by the 94th FIS and their F-106's. The 94th remained until being relieved by the 95th FIS and their aircraft on 15 Nov 1969. The 95th was the last F-106 unit to serve in Korea, remaining until May 1970.
