How We Got Here
For 25 years we were known as the “Aviation Supply Marines”. We organized primarily as a social group to maintain camaraderie within our profession. Our yearly reunions were organized and sponsored primarily by retired and active duty Aviation Supply Marines. Because we worked closely with Aircraft Maintenance, Avionics and Ordnance Marines, they were invited and attended many of our reunions. This tradition prevailed for many years. So, during our business meeting at the 2002 reunion it was unanimously voted to change our name to “Aviation Logistics Marines”
Some of the reasoning for the decision basically consisted of the historical fact that we never limited participation to only Aviation Supply Marines. Also, since the inception of the Marine Aviation Logistics Support Program (MALSP) and the reorganization of the Marine Aircraft Groups (MAGS) Headquarters and Maintenance Squadrons (H&MS’) into Marine Aviation Logistics Squadrons (MALS’), “Aviation Logistics” are the “key words” that we are all about. So! We now look forward to broadening our camaraderie within the Aviation Logistics community and keeping the traditions and heritages of our professions alive throughout the future years!
