SUBJ/2D MARINE AIRCRAFT WING ANNIVERSARY//
GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. ON BEHALF OF ALL MARINES, IT IS WITH GREAT PLEASURE THAT I CONGRATULATE 2D MARINE AIRCRAFT WING ON ITS 73RD ANNIVERSARY.
2. SINCE ITS ACTIVATION ON 10 JULY 1941, THE MARINES AND SAILORS OF 2D MAW HAVE DISTINGUISHED THEMSELVES IN COMBAT. FROM WORLD WAR II TO OPERATION ENDURING FREEDOM, FROM THE BALKANS TO THE SKIES OVER LIBYA, 2D MAW HAS EARNED A REPUTATION OF VALIANTLY RESPONDING TO EVERY CHALLENGE. BUILT UPON THE LEGACY OF MARINE CORPS AVIATION, YOU HAVE UPHELD THE FINEST TRADITIONS OF OUR EARLIEST AVIATORS AND PROVEN YOU ARE "SECOND TO NONE."
3. AS YOU CELEBRATE YOUR ANNIVERSARY, PAUSE TO REMEMBER THOSE WHO HAVE MADE THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE, AND REFLECT ON ALL WHO HAVE BEEN SAVED BY YOUR PROFESSIONAL RESPONSE TO THE CALL OF DUTY.
4. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY AND SEMPER FIDELIS! JAMES F. AMOS, GENERAL, U.S. MARINE CORPS, COMMANDANT OF THE MARINE CORPS.//
