Good news, got my start date for my new job
Posted by USMC6094 on Thursday, June 12, 2014 7:40 PM
I've been in the hiring process for a job at FRC East at MCAS Cherry Point since May, 9 June I took my required physical and today I got the call to give me my official start date, June 30th I will be back in the workforce and getting paid better than I ever have before. And I'll be working on helo's instead of fixed wings, but any job turning a wrench is better than what I've done in the recent past, especially when I get to learn a new(to me) type, model, series aircraft.

Congratulations! I think you'll find eastern North Carolina a pretty congenial place.

I have a stepson, Byron Prezell, who's a civilian machinist at the helicopter repair facility at Cherry Point. After he got out of the Navy he went through the machine technology program at Pitt Community College; he did his apprenticeship at Cherry Point, and has been there ever since. I know it's a huge base, but it seems possible that you'll run into him.

My wife and I live in Greenville, a little more than an hour from Havelock.

Youth, talent, hard work, and enthusiasm are no match for old age and treachery.

@ jtilley-  Yes sir this area is great, I grew up here and wasn't ever stationed here. I spent a good share of time in Greenville too, especially when I was with a National Guard unit in Winterville. Once I get settled in the work environment I might have to see if I can find him

Hey, USMC, congratulations! Is FRC the new name for NADEP, which was the new name for NARF?

I remember that NARF meant Naval Air Rework Facility, and that NADEP was Naval Aviation Depot, but I can't figure out what FRC could mean when it comes to working on aircraft. What does it mean?
