Over the years, there were several occasions where the 154th Group/Wing flew against Marine aviation from Marine Corp Base Hawaii. This dissimilar air combat training (DACT) was an important part of training for both organizations. DACT was introduced as a formal part of US air combat training after disappointing aerial combat exchange rates in the Vietnam War.
