Powe search through boxes of comic books during the third annual Comic Con Okinawa, hosted by Marine Corps Community Services May 4 at the Camp Foster Community Center. Comic Con was hosted in the Camp Foster Library for two years before moving to the community center due to increased popularity, allowing more space for guests and activities. Sanchez is an air transportation specialist with 733 Air Mobility Squadron, 515th Air Mobility Operations Wing. Powe is a helicopter and tiltrotor dynamic components mechanic with Marine Aviation Logistics Squadron 36, Marine Aircraft Group 36, 1st Marine Aircraft Wing, III Marine Expeditionary Force.

Edward W. Chambers II. “Being in a helicopter is something many of these Marines have never experienced before. Now they have a memory they can share while also learning new skills such as how to secure a perimeter around a helicopter after exiting.” The hike, which the Marines started at 4 a.m., began at Camp Hansen and ended at Landing Zone Buzzard where they were extracted and inserted back at the Camp Hansen parade field. Chambers is a maintenance management specialist with Service Company, III MHG, III MEF.
