Nine Marines from Marine Aviation Logistics Squadron (MALS) 11, Marine Aircraft Group (MAG) 11, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing, competed in the Competition-In-Arms Program (CIAP), Western Divisional Shooting Matches, at Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center Twentynine Palms, Calif., Feb. 1-15. Capt. Fabio Salas, Sgt. Mikel Donaldson, Sgt. Kir Meier, Sgt. Hubbard Campbell, and Lance Cpl. Tyler Holland placed first in the Large Unit Team Rifle Competition and brought home the San Diego Trophy, the first time a MALS has achieved this honor since 1921. The program enhances proficiency within the Marine Corps in the use of individual small arms by refining precision and combat marksmanship skills through advanced marksmanship training and competition. Sgt. Donaldson was awarded a gold medal for the individual pistol competition and a bronze medal for the individual rifle competition. Capt. Salas received a silver medal for the individual pistol competition. Both Donaldson and Salas were invited to the Marine Corps Matches in Quantico, Va. in April. “This is what has set us apart from other fighting forces and are the cement that glues the Marines Corps together and gives Marines a common outlook that transcends their grade, unit, or billet,” said Sgt. Maj. Allen Goodyear, MALS-11 sergeant major. “The nine Marines who made up the team demonstrated their individual lethality and combined they showed that all Marines are ready for any clime and place.”

MAG-11 conducted this training to exercise their real-world capabilities. Exercises such as this provide realistic, relevant training necessary for 3rd MAW to “Fix, Fly, and Fight” as the Marine Corps’ largest aircraft wing and ensures the unit remains combat-ready, inter-operable, deployable on short notice, and lethal when called into action.
