The flying squadrons of MAG-11 fly over 40,000 hours annually. They fall under the command of the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing and the I Marine Expeditionary Force. MAG-11 was officially designated on August 1, 1941, but its roots can be traced back to 1921. MAG-11 embarked for the South Pacific on October 15, 1942. Arriving at Espiritu Santo, New Hebrides Islands, MAG-11 launched offensive actions against enemy strongholds, air power, and shipping. During World War II, MAG-11 participated in combat action during such notable and historical battles as those conducted in the Solomon Islands, New Britain, Palau, Central Pacific Area, and the Philippine Islands. At the close of World War II, on 2 September 1945, MAG-11 was based on the island of Peleliu where it remained until January 1946. In addition to its earliest combat operations in World War II, MAG-11 has forward deployed as a MAG Headquarters element for combat operations to Atsugi, Japan in 1953; to Taiwan in 1958; to Da Nang, Republic of Vietnam from 1965 to 1971; to Sheik Isa Air Base, Bahrain in 1990; and to Al Jaber Air Base, Kuwait in 2003.
