Local leaders tour air station Lance Cpl. Cory D. Polom

Master Sgt. David J. Brown and Sgt. Devin J. Schwelss explain the mission and equipment that EOD uses to Craven County leaders during the Craven County Leadership Tour aboard the air station April 12. Both Brown and Schwelss are explosive ordinance disposal technicians with EOD.

MARINE CORPS AIR STATION CHERRY POINT, N.C. — More than 15 Craven County leaders visited Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, April 12, and toured several air station commands and sections to include Marine Transport Squadron 1, Force Readiness Center East air traffic control, and explosive ordnance disposal.

“I hope to help educate tomorrow’s leaders on the economic impact and mission of the Marine Corps and why it is important for the Marines to train and defend America,” said Vanessa Lawrence, MCAS Cherry Point community plans and liaison specialist and coordinator for the tour.

“These tours ensure community support will continue as these business owners become the leaders of future companies in outlying areas,” Lawrence said.
