Marines Fly In, Unleash Hell, And Fly Out During Air Assault Exercises
By air, land, and sea, Marines always get it done. During an air assault exercise, Marines come in via MV-22B Ospreys, fly into a simulated combat zone and execute an infantry bounding maneuver. Then they are extracted on the Ospreys back to base.
These events are part of the Weapons and Tactics Instructor (WTI) course at East Tac Airfield in Arizona. WTI is a seven week training event hosted by Marine Aviation Weapons and Tactics Squadron One (MAWTS-1) which emphasizes operational integration of the six functions of Marine Corps aviation in support of a Marine Air Ground Task Force. No matter how far inland the enemies would be, Marines will get there, get it done, and get out in time for dinner.
