    HAVELOCK, N.C. - In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, a detachment of Marines from Marine Light Attack Helicopter Squadron 467 went to New York to assist in the relief efforts.

    Lance Cpl. Thomas A. Fowler was among those Marines.
    The HMLA-467 Sabers flight line mechanic helped keep the UH-1N Huey and AH-1W Cobra helicopters wielded by the squadron ready to go at a moment’s notice throughout the operation.

    Fowler said he appreciates the opportunity to maintain and repair the storied aircraft whose versatility is a cornerstone of the Marine Air-Ground Task Force.

    “My favorite aspect of my job is just being around the aircraft, being able to learn about them,” Fowler said. “I never thought I’d learn to fix a helicopter.”
