This chapter serves as a bridge between the occupation of Haiti and the intervention in Nicaragua. During this period, the evolution of Marine Corps aviation was highlighted by organizational change, technological advancements, public relations ventures, professional development of the aviation cadre, and tactical innovations, leading to the emergence of a modern air force by the time the marines intervened in Nicaragua in 1927. The chapter examines the interventions in the Dominican Republic and northern China and explores the Marine Corps’ acquisition of modern aircraft during this period.

Keywords:   US Marine Corps, organizational change, technological advancement, tactical innovation, Dominican Republic, China
