    CHERRY POINT, N.C. — Sgt. Nathaniel P. Wiegner is a non-commissioned officer-in-charge with Marine Tactical Electronic Warfare Squadron 1's avionics section, where he conducts and supervises the maintenance of the communications, navigation and radar systems of the squadron's EA-6B Prowlers.

    "In this job you learn something new every day," said Wiegner. "I am a seeker of knowledge and enjoy my job because I'm constantly learning."

    Wiegner said the hardest part of his job is finding the time to balance his maintenance duties and help mentor his junior Marines.

    "There has to be a balance between my job and family life," said Wiegner. "The same has to be done between mentoring the young Marines in my shop and completing the unit mission. It is my duty as an NCO to pass on my knowledge to my junior Marines."

    Maintenance of the communications, navigation and radar systems is crucial to the success and failure of the mission of VMAQ-1, said Wiegner, "Without these three major systems, these aircraft cannot fly."
