LtCol Mark D. Bortnem will describe to us the special capabilities of the F/A-18 Hornet in its role of supporting Marine ground forces in combat. This versatile aircraft with its wide variety of weapons, communications, target identification, combined with air-to-ground prowess and air-to-air combat superiority, is the perfect weapon system to provide advanced attack in support of ground forces while defending those forces against enemy air attack.
Strap on your G-Suit and climb aboard for a fascinating and exciting narrative.
