Training Exercise - Valiant Blitz '90
Start Year
End Year

Various exercises are conducted to maintain the readiness of components and units of the Combined Forces Command defending the Republic of Korea. Valiant Blitz conducts amphibious operations training.
Air Wing ELEVEN made the final cruise aboard USS ENTERPRISE from September 1989 to March 1990. Highlights of the world cruise included exercises: PACEX, ANNUALEX 89 and VALIANT BLITZ 90 which heralded the largest assemblage of U.S. Naval Air and Sea Power since World War II. Coordinated operations involving triple carrier battle group (USS ENTERPRISE, USS CARL VINSON, and USS CONSTELLATION) and dual battle force (USS ENTERPRISE, USS CARL VINSON, USS NEW JERSEY and USS MISSOURI) units on conjunction with the Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force, Republic of Korea Navy and Air Force, U.S. Air Force and U.S. Marine Corps provided highly successful joint training.

June 1990 found VMA-231 deployed to WESTPAC as a squadron for the first time since World War II. Training continued in Iwakuni and Okinawa, Japan, as well as the Philippine Islands and Korea. Exercises included multiple air defense exercises with the Japanese Air Defense Force; VALIANT BLITZ 90, conducted in Eastern Korea during November 1990; and BEACHCREST 90, conducted in Okinawa in December.
