Maj. Ed Fergus, officer in charge of Marine Aerial Refueler Squadron 252 detachment attached to 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit, happily holds two of his three children on the Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point flight line Jan. 9, after an eight month deployment to Sicily, Italy and Djibouti. Fergus and more than 45 other Marines returned just before noon on two of the squadron's KC-130J Hercules. "Up until the last month and a half or so, we had a very high operational tempo," said Fergus. "We operated over three different geographic commands and conducted a lot of fixed wing refueling, helicopter refueling, aerial deliveries – the whole gamut."
