Cpl. Jordan K. Perkins, a team leader with 2nd Low Altitude Air Defense Battalion, shakes hands with a member of Team USA's baseball team after the Corporals Leadership Course graduation ceremony at the station theater, June 27.

CHERRY POINT, N.C. - The Marines of Corporals Leadership Course class 260-12 had a special group attend their graduation ceremony on June 27, at the Cherry Point Theater.

Team USAs Men's Baseball team visited the air station and attended the graduation as a special guest of Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point's Commanding Officer Col. Philip J. Zimmerman.

"We are honored to have Team USA come witness our youngest leaders graduate from corporal's course," said Zimmerman. "I hope the team was inspired by the sacrifice and dedication these corporals have shown and they take that motivation with them as they represent the United States."

Collegiate players from across the nation make up the team, and they were in town to play an exhibition game against the Morehead City Marlins. Team USA won the game 6-1

The team will be competing around the world to include the Haarlem Baseball Week in late July.
