Jane Wayne Day brings spouses, family closer to their Marines and sailors

April Polston, wife of Staff Sgt. Doug Polston and a Liberty, Ky., native, fires an M249 Squad Automatic Weapon at silhouette targets during Jane Wayne Day here, Sept. 28, 2012. Jane Wayne Day is dedicated to giving spouses and family members of Marines and sailors a chance to walk in their loved one’s boots for the day. Through live fire ranges, repelling down a tower, performing physical fitness tests and examining static weapons and vehicle displays, spouses and family members gained a better understanding of what it is like to be a Marine or sailor.
