100 years of US Marine Corps aviation

On May 22nd, 1912, the first Marine aviator reported for ‘duty in connection with aviation’.  100 years later, United States Marine Corps Aviation is larger than many Air Forces, and supports the USMC, other US forces and their allies around the world from bases on shore and afloat.

The USMC has released the video clip below to celebrate the 100th birthday of its aviation arm.  I highly recommend watching it in full-screen mode.

Congratulations, Marines, and Semper Fi!
