MARINE CORPS AIR STATION IWAKUNI, Japan - U.S. Marine Corps Lance Cpl. Lauren Song, a KC-130J Hercules crewmaster with Marine Aerial Refueler Transport Squadron (VMGR) 152, studies during a flight to Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, Aug. 11, 2017. Being aircrew requires more than the average military occupational specialty. Marines embrace the work ethic necessary to maintain a first-class physical fitness test and combat fitness test, maintain above an 85 percent throughout technical schools, perform annual check rides, and maintain accurate and current knowledge of the aircraft and its procedures.
