Toolan thanks money-saving 2nd MLG Marines

17 Sep 2011 | Sgt. Justin J. Shemanski

Two money-saving Marines with the 2nd Marine Logistics Group (Forward) Circuit Card Repair section were recognized for a job well done during Maj. Gen. John A. Toolan’s visit to the Intermediate Maintenance Activity lot aboard Camp Leatherneck, Sept. 17.

The commanding general of Regional Command Southwest met with Cpls. Zachary Moats and Christopher Huber to personally give his thanks for their efforts as circuit card repair technicians.

The Marines recently hit $105,000 in equipment repair savings.

“This kind of stuff is amazing,” said a proud Toolan, as he presented each Marine with a challenge coin, a tangible token of his appreciation.

He continued to quiz the Marines on the technical aspects of their job and they candidly explained their niche capabilities.

Since arriving in country more than six months ago, the Marines have been charged with repairing items such as battery chargers, laptop computers and radios down to the component level. By swapping out something as small as a transistor or capacitor, the Marines were able to repair existing equipment for approximately $800 in repair parts, vice the much larger cost of completely replacing some of the gear.
