Cruising at over 13,000' above Yuma, Ariz. Oct. 11, U.S. Marine loadmasters Lance Cpl. Antony Eby of Orlando, Fla. and Lance Cpl. Noah Heacox of Huntington Beach, Calif. prepare for AV-8B Harrier refueling. Both attached to Marine Aerial Refueler Transport Squadron 152 out of Futema, Okinawa, Japan, Eby and Heacox say they absolutely love their jobs in the Corps because of the opportunities for travel and supporting the Marine Corps aviation mission. "Going to work is exciting because we start the day in Okinawa, the plane turns on, we land in a different country and get to explore cultures around the world," said Heacox.
