The 1st Marine Aircraft Wing's mission is to provide combat ready expeditionary aviation forces capable of short notice world wide deployment to Marine Air Ground Task Force (MAGTF), fleet and unified commanders.
Our mission to provide well trained, organized and equipped combat ready forces remains our number one priority.
The First Marine Aircraft Wing (1st MAW) is comprised of Marines, sailors and civilians. We enjoy a climate of trust and cohesiveness that makes our combat organization greater than the sum of its individual parts. As a combat team, we focus on excellence and mission success. We accept nothing less than superior performance, for mediocrity has no place in aviation.
Our high standards of professional excellence are apparent in our conduct and preparation for combat. We are the epitome of professionalism in everything we do: in our work ethic, our grooming standards, in our daily behavior, and while we are enjoying well-earned liberty. We remain combat ready to conduct any mission assigned. We stay fit for duty – physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Our posture for success sustains us in combat.
We are representatives of the United States of America, of our service, and of our families. Our personal interaction sets the standard by which 1st Marine Aircraft Wing is judged. We always maintain the highest standards of professionalism and human dignity.
The action, or inaction, of any one individual plays a critical role in our preparation for combat.
Our leadership is proactive, never abusive. We thrive on challenges, seek solutions, and produce positive, timely results. We are always accountable and accept responsibility for our actions. We know the rules and regulations and abide by them. Integrity is our cornerstone, honesty is our guide, and respect for our fellow man is our creed. We will not waiver in our mission to defeat terrorism and destroy those extremists who threaten our way of life.
Excel, demand excellence, set the example, be responsible, contribute to the 1st Marine Aircraft Wing success and we will make a difference as we defeat the enemies of our great country.
