  2. 2. A LEGACY OF VALOR“It is perhaps well to discuss the impact of the air support that the Marine and Army units received at the Chosin Reservoir.The Marine Corps’ uniqueness as a fighting unit is that, among other things, it comes with its own integrated air support.The relationship between the Marine on the ground and the Marine in the air was unique at the time. The Marines’ closeair support of the troops on the ground functioned well, because each battalion-sized unit on the ground had a tactical aircontrol party, one of whom was always a pilot. Major General O.P. Smith, First Marine Division commander, commented inhis oral history, “When a request went up to the air for support, those people up there knew that some aviator down on theground had checked that over and they were not going to have to do something impossible. Those poor aviators in thefrontline battalions, they really took a beating; they were right up there.”As dawn came on 29 November 1950, it meant not only that the First Marine Division was still holding, but it also meant theresumption of the air support that was so necessary, not only to the Marines’ survival but also to the Army troops east ofthe reservoir as well.Major General Smith later wrote in a letter to Major General Field Harris, commander of the First Marine Aircraft Wing:“Without your support our task would have been infinitely more difficult and more costly. During the long reaches of thenight and in the snowstorms, many a Marine prayed for the coming of day or clearing weather, when he knew he wouldagain hear the welcome roar of your planes as they dealt out destruction to the enemy.Never in its history has Marine Aviation given more convincing proof of its indispensable value to the ground marines. Abond of understanding has been established that will never be broken.” Gail Shisler For Country and Corps 2009
  3. 3. The Osprey has already done three deployments to Iraq; is on its fourth to Afghanistan; and is on its fourth aboard ship with a Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU). This aircraft is so quiet and so fast, and flies so high and far, that it is not just changing aviation tactics… it is changing infantry tactics, as ground commanders realize the speed, shock, surprise, and battlefield flexibility they have with this capability. In the same way the Osprey revolutionizes assault support, the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) will revolutionize tactical air support of ground forces. The Marine Corps is going to buy 420 of these aircraft, both the B (short takeoff / verticalAs it has been for the 100 years since our founding, Marine landing) and C (carrier) variants. The JSF will fly from L-classaviation’s number one priority is to support the ground force ships as well as from the aircraft carrier, and will operatein winning our nation’s wars.

  12. 12. MARINE AVIATION IN THE PACIFICAs stated in the 21 June 2011, Security Consultative Committee (SCC) document, Progress on the Realignment of U.S. Forces inJapan, the U.S. government is committed to implement steadily the realignment initiatives described in the 1 May 1 2006 SCCdocument, United States-Japan Roadmap for Realignment Implementation. The bilateral realignment initiatives and additionalservice requirements result in changes to Marine aviation laydown in the Pacific that will be realized over the next twentyyears.Present Marine aviation Pacific laydown:Currently, Marine aviation in the Pacific primarily resides in three locations: 1) Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Kaneohe Bay,HI; 2) MCAS Iwakuni, Japan; and 3) MCAS Futenma, Okinawa, Japan with 1st Marine Aircraft Wing and other headquarters atCamp Foster, Okinawa, Japan. Other Marine aviation presence in the Pacific is realized through Marine Expeditionary Unit(MEU) Aviation Combat Element (ACE) deployments of the 11th, 13th, 15th , and 31st MEUs.Changes as a result of the 2006 “Roadmap” realignment initiatives:The agreements resulting from the 2006 realignment initiatives will affect Marine aviation directly or indirectly. The mostnotable agreements involve the relocation of aircraft and personnel from MCAS Futenma to the Futenma Replacement Facility(FRF) and MCAS Iwakuni; relocation of aviation units from Okinawa and MCAS Iwakuni to Guam; and relocation of U.S. Navyaircraft and personnel from Naval Air Facility (NAF) Atsugi to MCAS Iwakuni. These initiatives require Master Planning effortsthat include base design or redesign as well as construction at the following locations: Camp Schwab, MCAS Iwakuni, andAndersen Air Force Base (Guam).Changes as a result of USMC service requirements:The modernization of Marine aircraft and enabling systems, as presented throughout the AvPlan, will result in improvedcapabilities and additional employment options for the Pacific Command (PACOM) commander. Legacy aircraft are beingreplaced by new aircraft and as a result will arrive to the bases throughout the Pacific and strengthen the capabilities of theU.S.-Japan alliance. In addition to the modernization of Marine aircraft and enabling systems, service decisions on basinglocations of Marine aviation assets will result in enhanced support to the Marine Air Ground Task Force (MAGTF). 1-7
  13. 13. MARINE AVIATION IN THE PACIFICMarine aviation in the Pacific: FY12 through FY21A combination of implementing the bilateral realignment initiatives and service requirements will result in a Marine aviationlaydown in the Pacific that will see the introduction of new aircraft to existing bases while the infrastructure, facilities, and trainingcapabilities are being developed to support the realignment of forces. A number of variables can affect the actual arrival of a unitor aircraft, however, the following changes to Marine aviation in the Pacific are expected to occur in the next ten years:• MCAS Kaneohe Bay – UH-1Y arrives, MV-22 replaces CH-53D, AH-1W arrives and is replaced by the AH-1Z, CH-53E replaces CH-53D, MWSD-24 Det is activated, and VMU-3 relocates from 29 Palms.• MCAS Iwakuni – VMGR-152 relocates from MCAS Futenma, F-35B replaces F/A-18 and AV-8, Navy Carrier Air Wing Five (CVW-5)relocates fixed-wing aircraft and supporting personnel from NAF Atsugi.• MCAS Futenma – MV-22 replaces CH-46, UH-1Y replaces UH-1N, VMGR-152 relocates to MCAS Iwakuni, AH-1Z replaces AH-1W.• 11th, 13th, 15th , and 31st MEUs– ACE deploys with MV-22, AH-1Z, UH-1Y, CH-53E, and F-35B aircraft.Marine aviation in the Pacific: FY-22 through FY31Due to the variability associated with political considerations, environmental impacts, design and construction timelines, andfunding requirements, it is anticipated that it could take at least ten years to complete the required projects that support therealignment initiatives. In addition to those changes listed above, the following changes to Marine aviation in the Pacific areexpected to occur over the next twenty years:• MCAS Kaneohe Bay – CH-53K replaces the CH-53E.• FRF – MAG-36 and supporting air station units relocate from MCAS Futenma.• Andersen Air Force Base – Marine ACE operates from the North Ramp at Andersen Air Base. Guam ACE consists of a VMM,HMH Det, HMLA Det, and supporting enablers.• 11th, 13th, 15th , and 31st MEUs– ACE deploys with MV-22, AH-1Z, UH-1Y, CH-53K, and F-35B aircraft.NOTE: U.S. global defense posture is constantly being assessed. Future Marine aviation laydown in the Pacific is subject to furtherreview and may result in a different laydown than what has been presented. 1-8

  37. 37. New Aircraft Test and Evaluation Updates (continued) TACAIR INTEGRATION (TAI) UPDATEINITIAL OPERATIONAL CAPABILITY: A revised Memorandum of Agreement with the Navy was signed in May 2011. It stipulates that the FA-18A-D will source UDP requirementsJoint Strike Fighter IOC prerequisites delineated in the 1 March 2010 and that FA-18A/C and F-35C will source Navy Carrier Air Wing (CVW)DCA requirements letter to the JSF Program Executive Officer in March requirements.2010 reflect the USMC warfighting requirements for the F-35B. Thesespecifics include, but are not limited to, 10 aircraft capable of executing The Marine Corps has three squadrons integrated into CVWs, while theassigned TACAIR mission sets and 6 aircraft capable of an austere Navy has one VFA squadron integrated into the Marine Corps Unitand/or ship-based detachment. The USMC plan is to maintain these Deployment Program (UDP). This provides the Navy with a “net gain” ofbaseline requirements, field the aircraft as delivered, train to the two squadrons. With the elimination of Navy support to UDP in FY12,capabilities as they are cleared for operational use, and achieve IOC the Marine Corps will move to a support level of three squadrons.when the aircraft and support is delivered without limitations.When IOC will be achieved will be dependent upon restructure of the F/A-18 SERVICE LIFE MANAGEMENT PROGRAM (SLMP)Joint Strike Fighter Program and on when the Marine Corps has aclearer understanding on flight test plans, software development The health of our FA-18 inventory is critical to the success of TAI andimprovements, and aircraft delivery schedules. the Department of the Navy’s TACAIR support to the warfighter. This aircraft is also critical to the success of the MAGTF.Fleet aircrew and maintenance training is expected commence in FY12.VMFA-332 will re-activate in FY12 at MCAS Yuma, AZ. The current Center Barrel Replacement Plus (CBR+) program will extend the life of the Lot 17 and below aircraft (421 total) to 1.0 WingKC-130J Root Fatigue Life (WRFLE).HARVEST HAWK: In response to an Urgent Universal Need Statement,the USMC integrated a bolt-on/bolt-off ISR/weapon mission kit for useon existing KC-130J aircraft.
