CHERRY POINT, N.C. (October 17, 2012) — When Marines with Marine Aerial Refueler Transport Squadron 252 employ or repair aircraft, those operations and repairs are recorded on a network of servers. Cpl Siobhan Garro, an aircraft maintenance administration specialist with VMGR-252, turns information given to her by pilots, crew chiefs, mechanics and other personnel into useful logs and archives.

Garro uses global management and optimal administrative maintenance activity servers that provide a measurable increase in aircraft material readiness through reduced maintenance turnaround times and improved supply response times, according to the Joint Interoperability Test Command website.

Garro said the job is mentally challenging and has pushed her to grow in her abilities to use and adapt to new technologies and systems. She said the job has also taught her about the importance of organization at all levels.

Garro was recently meritoriously promoted to corporal and is currently pursuing her passion of becoming a physical trainer by studying at Craven County Community College.

Garro said she enjoys new challenges, and the Marine Corps has motivated her to keep progressing forward both on and off duty.
