Reserve MK team The reservists at Station Manasquan Inlet, N.J., spent part of their recent two weeks of active duty doing regular maintenance to the station's smallboats. Led by active duty machinery technician Petty Officer 1st Class Lantz Fortner, Petty Officer 1st Class William Pearson, Petty Officer 2nd Class Wesley Pearson, and Petty Officers 3rd Class Abigail Gall and Corey Karp performed the "RB-S Height Adjust Fastener Check and Temporary repair" on the station's two 29-foot RBS platforms. "The maintenance on the first boat took over 7 hours the first day," said Senior Chief Petty Officer Brian Miley. "However, by the second day, the team's efficiency and productivity was greatly increased. In the process, the reserve and the active duty members were able to forge a stronger relationship by working together to accomplish a mission critical task, which boosted morale." The reservists shadowed their active duty counterparts and helped out where needed. On the outside, both Pearson and Karp are carpenters, Gall is an engineering technician, and MK1 Pearson is a pilot.
