Integration is one of the most important functions of any high level military force. No one knows this better than the U.S. Marine Corps, where the Marine Air Ground Task Force has been at the heart of the Corps structure for more than a half century. The U.S. Marine Corps doesn’t preach it, they devote countless hours of practice to this. In every U.S. Marine Corps instruction course, operational integration is the top flavor.
This video shows an example of this. You can see footage of U.S. Marine Corps CH-53E Super Stallions conducting an aerial refuel shortly before Sgt. Taylor P. Baker, military information support operations (MISO) specialist with Marine Corps Information Operations Center (MCIOC), drops sanitized leaflets from a KC-130J Super Hercules during Weapons and Tactics Instructor course (WTI) 1-17 in Yuma, Ariz. All of this was part of FINEX-3, the final evolution of the Weapons and Tactics Instructor (WTI) course 1-17, a seven week training event hosted by MAWTS-1 cadre. FINEX-3 emphasizes operational integration of the six functions of Marine Corps aviation in support of a Marine Air Ground Task Force.
