Students, teachers and chaperones find shade underneath a wing of a KC-130J Hercules transport plane, during a visit to Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point Sept. 26. Twenty-eight students from St. Paul Catholic School in nearby New Bern, N.C., took a field trip to the air station to visit the Hercules squadron and Marine Light Attack Helicopter Squadron 467. “This is what I call real education,” said Bill Rogers, the student’s fifth-grade teacher, who knows a little bit about the military himself as a reserve lieutenant colonel in the Army National Guard. “At this age, when these kids get to see jets, helicopters and Marines, it can really set with them.”
