Sgt. Micah Parr is a powerline mechanic assigned to Marine Aerial Refueler Transport Squadron 252, Marine Aircraft Group 14, 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing aboard Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, N.C. As a powerline mechanic, Parr is responsible for everything from engines and fuel systems to auxiliary power units and propellers. “I absolutely love my job,” said Parr. “My job is to fix KC-130J’s. Without powerline mechanics, planes wouldn’t be able to stay in the air. It gives me a sense of accomplishment to be given a problem on an engine, troubleshoot it, then come back and solve it and watch that plane take off the next day.” (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Lance Cpl.
