SUBJ/4TH MARINE AIRCRAFT WING ANNIVERSARY//
GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. ON BEHALF OF ALL MARINES, I CONGRATULATE THE MEN AND WOMEN OF THE 4TH MARINE AIRCRAFT WING ON YOUR 71ST ANNIVERSARY.
2. SINCE ITS ACTIVATION ON 22 AUGUST 1942, 4TH MAW HAS ESTABLISHED ITSELF AS A PILLAR OF EXCELLENCE AND A FORMIDABLE FOE. ORIGINALLY DESIGNATED THE 4TH MARINE BASE DEFENSE AIRCRAFT WING IN HAWAII, 4TH MAW INITIATED ITS DISTINGUISHED HISTORY IN THE MIDST OF SOME OF THE HEAVIEST FIGHTING OF WORLD WAR II. DEMONSTRATING TECHNICAL AND TACTICAL PROWESS IN COMBAT OPERATIONS THROUGHOUT THE MARSHALL AND MARIANA ISLANDS, THE WARRIORS OF 4TH MAW RAPIDLY BECAME A WELL RESPECTED AVIATION TEAM THAT HELPED SECURE VICTORY ACROSS THE PACIFIC.
3. THE ARDENT DEVOTION TO READINESS AND MISSION EXCELLENCE BY 4TH MAW HAS NEVER WAVERED. THE WING CAN BE PROUD OF ITS STORIED HISTORY AND THE COMMITMENT IT HAS GIVEN TO OUR CORPS. THE MARINES AND SAILORS OF 4TH MAW CONTINUE TO SERVE WITH DIGNITY TODAY JUST AS THEY DID IN WORLD WAR II AND KOREA.
4. AS YOU CELEBRATE THIS 71ST ANNIVERSARY, REFLECT UPON YOUR MANY SUCCESSES OVER THE YEARS, HONOR THOSE WHO HAVE GIVEN ALL AND BE PRIDEFUL OF THE LEGACY YOU HAVE CREATED.
5. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY AND SEMPER FIDELIS. JAMES F. AMOS, GENERAL, U.S. MARINE CORPS, COMMANDANT OF THE MARINE CORPS.//
