Marines host youngsters' field trip to Cherry Point flight line

Maj. Edward Fergus, a KC-130J Hercules pilot with Marine Aerial Refueler Transport Squadron 252, guides second and fifth-graders into a Hercules during a visit to Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point Sept. 26. Twenty-eight students from St. Paul Catholic School in nearby New Bern, N.C., took a field trip to the air station to visit the Hercules squadron and Marine Light Attack Helicopter Squadron 467. “It’s very positive and helpful for them to understand what their U.S. Military does, because at the end of the day, it is their military,” said Fergus.
