Our Squadron is for all Marines who are or were part of Marine Air Command and Control. The name honors a small team of Marines who created an all weather bombing system in 1949 at Point Magu, California that evolved to become the Air Support Radar Team (ASRT). The equipment was sent to the Korean War as part of the 1st MAW, 1st MTACS. The radio call sign was Devastate Charlie. We are part of the Marine Corps Aviation Association.

KODIAK, Alaska – Support at all levels of operations are present during the Pacific Command joint exercise Northern Edge 11 -- including service members who construct, maintain and tear-down operating locations used during training.

Those who make this happen at a communications site here are the motor transportation and utilities Marines and the single Navy Corpsman of Marine Air Control Squadron One, from Marine Corps Air Station Yuma, Ariz.

“[Our support] enhances the Marines adaptability to employ and deploy in a new area,” said Warrant Officer Daniel Fuller, the officer-in-charge of MACS-1 Tactical Data System detachment and a native of Gig Harbor, Wash.

MACS-1’s satellite and communications gear is designed to be rapidly transported by truck, helicopter or C-130 cargo plane. Everything from the tactical and radar equipment to the tents and generators were inspected and loaded into containers at home station by the Marines.
