Capt. Eric D. Albright, a Harrier pilot with Marine Attack Squadron 223, in front of an AV-8B Harrier at the squadron’s hangar June 13, aboard Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, N.C. The squadron recently returned from a six-month deployment to Afghanistan where they provided overwatch and close-air support for ground troops in Helmand province. "I love flying, and I am going to continue flying the Harrier until the Marine Corps won't let me," said Albright.
