1st MARDIV (Fwd) commanding general presents combat aircrew wings

Combat aircrew wings, pictured here, were presented to six Marines from Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron 362, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing (Forward), Jan. 20. Brig. Gen. Joseph Osterman, the 1st Marine Division (Forward) commanding general, presented the Marines with their combat aircrew wings during a ceremony held at the Camp Bastion flightline. He recognized the Marines for their efforts supporting infantry Marines of 1st MARDIV (Fwd) during their deployment. The combat aircrew wings must be earned while the unit is deployed. It is a prestigious distinguishing device as it is symbolic of Marine aviation's deep bond and commitment to supporting the infantry and coalition forces in Afghanistan.
