MARINE CORPS AIR STATION CHERRY POINT, N.C. - Lance Cpl. Michael R. Loucel is a warehouse clerk with Marine Air Control Squadron 2, where he receives and ships supplies to and from other offices in the squadron.
Loucel, a native of Rockledge, Fla., said he enjoys the hours and hard work he puts in every day.
“I am not stuck behind a computer day after day for hours at a time,” said Loucel. “I’m either carrying heavy boxes or driving a forklift. I enjoy working hard.”
Loucel said the hardest part of his day is when the work is slow and there is not much for him to do. He likes to keep busy in order to stay on time with the squadron mission.
“The missions for any Marine Corps unit would fail without the supply Marine,” said Loucel. “Without us they would have a harder time getting the right gear for deployments. We provide the gear needed to keep the trucks rolling and the radios squawking.”
