Fly By: Lance Cpl. Zachary G. Harrison Lance Cpl. Andrea Cleopatra Dickerson

Port Huron, Mich. native, Lance Cpl. Zachary G. Harrison, an aviation ordnance technician with Marine Tactical Electronic Warfare Squadron 3, works hard everyday to ensure successful flight line navigation for the squadron's EA-6B Prowler pilots.

HAVELOCK, N.C. — While many Marines aboard Cherry Point are performing their daily routines, Lance Cpl. Zachary G. Harrison is out on the flight line visually communicating necessary commands and signals EA-6B Prowler pilots need to navigate the runway.

“He is one of the best Marines this squadron has,” said Staff Sgt. Jasmine L. Saunders, the ordnance chief for Marine Tactical Electronic Warfare Squadron 3. “He is always our go to person because the dedication he has for his job.

He is the first to volunteer when we need something done. His work ethic is unparalleled.”

Harrison says he loves his job because there is always the opportunity to knowledge and gain new skills.

“I work with the ordnance on the Prowlers, but I am now training as a team leader so I am now the person standing in front of the aircraft conducting hand and arm signals to other team members,” said Harrison.

Even though Harrison has only been with the squadron a short amount of time, Saunders says he is progressing very quickly.
