    MARINE CORPS AIR STATION CHERRY POINT, N.C. - Checking wires and screens, Cpl. Mark C. Gonzales, a data network specialist with Marine Air Control Squadron 2, has anything but a boring job. With each new call that comes in comes a new challenge, a new solution and a new learning experience.

    Gonzales explained that the best and worst part of his job comes in one simple package called troubleshooting.

    Troubleshooting to the data Marines consists of a problem that could range from emails not working to downed communications between a network of squadrons, and it’s their job to figure it out and repair it.

    In September 2011, MACS-2 returned to Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point from a seven-month deployment to Afghanistan.

    “While we were deployed we actually revamped the network,” said Gonzales. “We upgraded software and replaced the cabling for the communications systems. We replaced the physical infrastructure of MACS-2 forward by improving it and increasing efficiency.”
