MARINE CORPS AIR STATION CHERRY POINT, N.C. - Cpl. Fabian Cardona is an individual material readiness list asset manager with Marine Light Attack Helicopter Squadron 467.

Cardona manages assets at the organizational and intermediate levels of maintenance, using technical publications and automated data processing equipment to gather and report inventories.

“In a nutshell, my job is to keep an inventory on the equipment used to repair the aircraft,” said the Queens, N.Y., native. “I know my job is important to this squadron because without us, the mechanics couldn’t get their job done.”

Cardona recently transferred from Marine Corps Air Station Futenma, Okinawa, Japan where he worked with KC-130J Hercules. Here, he works with UH-1N Hueys and AH-1W Super Cobras.

“The biggest challenge of this job is learning all of the new nomenclature, but in turn, that makes it the most rewarding too,” said Cardona.
