    Cpl. Joshua Murphy, an airframe mechanic with Marine Aerial Refueler Transport Squadron 252, stands in front of one of the squadron’s KC-130J Hercules on the Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point flight line Oct. 29. Murphy, a native of Colton, Calif., recently rushed to the aid of a 19-year-old woman who was in a car accident near his home in Newport, N.C. Murphy applied pressure to a wound on the young woman’s head until paramedics arrived. She was airlifted to Vident Memorial Hospital in Greenville, N.C., where she was treated for non-life threatening injuries. “That’s who we’re supposed to be as a Marine,” said Murphy. “We’re there to help and to protect.”
