    Most people don't realize:

    Ground/Air Support was pioneered by Marine Aviation in Nicaragua in 1927-28.

    One out of three Marine Officers is an Aviator.

    The Marine Corps and Naval Aviation have a higher percentage of Enlisted Aircrewmen than the USAF.


    Oooorah!

    Happy Birthday Marine Corp Aviation!
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    Semper Fi. I was not an Air Winger but I was born on Marine Air Station, Cherry Point. My son later went into the Corps and was an Aviation Weapons Tech on FA-18 Hornets.
    "A first rate man with a third rate gun is far better than the other way around". The gun is a tool, you are the craftsman that makes it work. There are those who say "if I had to do it, I could" yet they never go out and train to do it. Don't let stupid be your mindset. Harryball 2013

    Nor do most realize that the US Army has the largest air force (aircraft in inventory) in the US military!

    That's because we AF enlisted folk learned to send our officers into Harm's Way first. ;-) Leaves more steak and crab legs for the rest of us.
