The unit was reactivated as the 48th Pursuit Squadron in 1941. In 1942 the 48th moved to Algeria to support the invasion of North Africa and later operations.  In December 1943 the 48th moved to  Italy and conducted fighter escort for heavy bombers. From 1946 until 1949 the 48th Fighter Squadron flew air defense missions from Maine. The 48th Fighter Interceptor Squadron was activated in Virginia from 1953 until the deactivation in 1991.
