    CHERRY POINT, N.C. - Lance Cpl. Tyler J. Small spends his days working with explosives.

    Small, an aviation ordnance systems technician with Headquarters and Headquarters Squadron, supplies units aboard the station with the munitions necessary to provide effective close-air support to troops on the ground.

    He accounts for, stows, tests, performs maintenance and assembly on, and transports ordnance on a day-to-day basis.

    The Selinsgrove, Pa., native said learning the storage compatibility of ordnance was difficult for him, but he loves it anyway.

    “I love that I am able to work with the explosive ordnance” he said.
    Small said his work and the that of other ordnance Marines is an important component of the continued success of 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing.

    “Ordnance plays a vital role in the mission,” said Small.
