Engineer Charged with Obstructing a Criminal Investigation into the Cause of the USMC Yanky 72 Plane Crash

Tuesday, July 9th, 2024

OXFORD, MS – A former Robins Air Force Base employee has been arrested for making false statements and obstructing justice during a federal criminal investigation into a 2017 military plane crash that claimed the lives of 16 service members.

On July 10, 2017, a United States Marine Corps KC-130 transport aircraft known as “Yanky 72” crashed near Itta Bena, Mississippi, resulting in the death of fifteen Marines and one Navy Corpsman. On Tuesday morning, JAMES MICHAEL FISHER, formerly of Warner Robins, Georgia and currently residing in Portugal, was arrested on an indictment issued by a federal grand jury in the Northern District of Mississippi charging him with obstruction of justice and false statements during a criminal investigation into the cause of that crash.

According to the indictment, FISHER, 67, a former propulsion engineer with the C-130 program office at Robins Air Force Base, engaged in a pattern of conduct intended to avoid scrutiny for his past engineering decisions related to why the crash may have occurred. Specifically, the indictment alleges that FISHER knowingly concealed key engineering documents from criminal investigators and made materially false statements to criminal investigators about his past engineering decisions.

FISHER is charged with two false statements and two obstruction of justice charges. If convicted, he faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison. A federal district court judge would determine any sentence after considering the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

U.S. Attorney Clay Joyner of the Northern District of Mississippi; and Air Force Office of Special Investigations (AFOSI), Defense Criminal Investigative Service (DCIS), and Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) made the announcement.

AFOSI, DCIS, and NCIS are investigating the case.

Assistant U.S. Attorneys Scott Leary and Philip Levy are prosecuting the case.

An indictment is merely an allegation and all defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

Corps Collaborations: Industry Innovations in Textiles and Medical Tech on Display in North Carolina

Friday, May 31st, 2024

Marine Corps Base Quantico, Va. —

Earlier this month, MCSC’s Program Manager Combat Support Systems, or PM CSS, was on the ground on Tobacco Road for the 2024 FEDTEX Summit– a yearly symposium that connects the DOD’s acquisition community with industry leaders in textiles and tactical equipment—and the 2024 Special Operations Medical Association Conference, a forum that showcases the latest in expeditionary medical technologies.

Hosted at North Carolina State University’s McKimmon Conference Center in Raleigh, FEDTEX provided the team an opportunity to engage with existing industry partners in the textile sector, tour the Wilson College of Textile facilities, and connect with graduate students interested in entering federal service.

According to Col. Paul Gillikin, CSS program manager and NC State alum, “Connecting with the textile community is essential to meet Force Design’s modernization goals and support Expeditionary Advanced Base Operations, or EABO. Strengthening supply chains and integrating advanced textiles and manufacturing techniques are crucial to mitigating the growing risks in the electromagnetic spectrum. It was important to discuss Marine Corps and Joint warfighter needs and then hear industry feedback on that direction.”

Although the Pentagon’s strategic return to the Indo-Pacific has led to a renewed focus on the fielding of expeditionary capabilities meant to dominate the global littorals, experts have warned a future war against our nation’s pacing threat could be decided—in large part—on the electromagnetic spectrum.

Exposing this emerging reality, the Pentagon recently warned that China has developed advanced electromagnetic spectrum monitoring technology, making it difficult for Marines to conceal their presence on the battlefield. From heat signatures to electromagnetic emissions from their gear, the warfighter risks revealing critical information that adversaries can detect and exploit.

With high-end weapon systems dominating the headlines, PM CSS is actively pursuing technology to protect individual Marines and small units. Along with its Joint clothing partners, the team is focused on the visible and non-visible portions of the electromagnetic spectrum to increase capability against emerging sensor threats, particularly in the thermal realm.

Although clothing has historically been seen as a source of comfort and protection from varying weather conditions and ordnance, developments in military technology from our adversaries have forced experts to reimagine the role of textiles on the modern battlefield, viewing them as personal protective equipment– much like body armor– that enhances the warfighter’s lethality and reduces detectability from peer and near-peer adversaries.

According to Ed Howell, Product Manager for Combat Service Support Equipment, “The FEDTEX conference provided an excellent opportunity to explore the state of the art in domestic textiles for Marine Corps tactical uniforms. It was particularly eye-opening to witness the mannequin, PyroMan, undergo a flame test while wearing clothing at the Thermal Protection Laboratory in the Wilson School of Textiles at NC State University. Flame resistance, along with signature management, is one of the key attributes we are seeking in the next generation of Marine Corps Combat Utility Uniforms.”

Similarly, team members from PM CSS’ Expeditionary Medical team were at SOMA to meet with American and international industry partners to explore the latest advancements in field medical technology.

Under Force Design’s strategic blueprint for modernization, collaboration with industry is pivotal for enhancing medical support and operational readiness in contested environments. These efforts aim to improve Marines’ survival while awaiting evacuation, significantly boosting their resilience and effectiveness in challenging situations.

EABO has fundamentally changed field medical operations,” said Navy Cmdr. Kellye Donovan, EMS Team Program Analyst-Pharmacist. “We have shifted from the GWOT’s ‘Golden Hour’ for patient movement to extended patient holding, providing 96-hour patient care in the field. We are looking for industry assistance to push care to a lower level, make medical capabilities more agile and maneuverable, and reduce logistical constraints in a distributed, contested environment.”

Yet, while creating a forum for collaboration with industry is crucial, connecting with students is equally essential to CSS’ mission as engaging the next generation of innovators ensures a continuous flow of fresh ideas and talent, driving the development of critical textile and medical capabilities for the Corps.

Jacqueline Sewell, a Textile Technologist at the Army Combat Capabilities Development Command and matrixed to the Clothing & Equipment Team under CSS, holds both undergraduate and graduate degrees from the Wilson College of Textiles, or WCOT.

“NC State’s programs have provided me with a foundational knowledge of textiles and an avenue to tangibly contribute to increasing our warfighter’s comfort, capabilities, and mission success through their DoD-issued gear,” she said. “Working for the DoD has allowed me to apply the knowledge gained through my education at WCOT to research, develop, test, and evaluate textiles with active-duty Marines stationed across the US (from Mountain Warfare Training Center to Kaneohe Bay) in leading to the acquisition and sustainment of items such as combat uniforms and extreme cold weather base layers.”

Ultimately, the capabilities being developed by CSS in collaboration with the Joint Force and industry partners are helping modernize and strengthening our military forces. Advanced textiles are enhancing protection and reducing detection risks, while emerging medical technologies are improving field treatment and increasing survival rates. These innovations help maintain operational readiness and effectiveness in contested environments, ensuring that our warfighters are equipped with the best possible tools to succeed on the modern battlefield.

Hiding in Plain Sight: ULCANS and the Future of Expeditionary Logistics

Saturday, April 20th, 2024

Marine Corps Base Quantico, Va. —

The global security situation is rapidly changing, and the international order established by the United States and its allies following the fall of the Iron Curtain is presently being challenged by adversaries who seek to shift the long-established balance of power.

The Pentagon has called on the joint forces to shift their strategic focus from the land wars in the Middle East to the growing challenges along the global littorals, while at the same time, experts have warned that the next global conflict will be fought and won—in large part– on the electromagnetic spectrum– the electromagnetic frequencies used for military communications, intelligence, and combat operations.

On this rapidly evolving battlefield—naked to the invisible eye– securing the electromagnetic spectrum extends beyond merely keeping the warfighter safe; it is about defending the very capabilities that render them lethal. This encompasses protecting both the warfighter and the advanced technologies and systems that amplify their effectiveness and lethality in combat. Ultimately, this helps protect lives and ensure the survivability of systems under observation and attack.

“Due to advances in peer competitor technologies, operating securely in the electromagnetic spectrum is foundational to contested logistics operations. It ensures our ability to sustain forces in adversarial environments, enhancing both our resilience and tactical flexibility,” said Col Paul Gillikin, Program Manager for Combat Support Systems, or PM CSS.

ULCANS: an Invisibility Cloak?

Within this challenging geopolitical context, Marine Corps Systems Command’s PM CSS’ efforts to enhance our forces’ ability to operate undetected in contested spaces—namely thru the modernization of the Corps’ netted camouflage capability—are rendered pivotal.

Recognizing the mounting threat posed by our stated adversaries, the 2018 National Defense Strategy laid the foundation for the Department of Defense’s 2020 Electromagnetic Spectrum, or EMS, Superiority Strategy—a document that emphasizes the EMS as a critical battleground where invisible waves and frequencies become pivotal in modern warfare.

Adapting to this strategy, PM CSS is dedicated to advancing mobile camouflage solutions through the development of the Ultra-Lightweight Camouflage Net System Increment I, or ULCANS INC I, of the Corps’ revolutionary netting capability. This initiative focuses on enhancing visual and electromagnetic concealment across a broad spectrum, including Ultraviolet, Visual, Near-IR, Shortwave-IR, Thermal-IR, and radar, ensuring forces (and their gear) remain undetected in diverse environments.

With the inclusion of both scattering and non-scattering variants, ULCANS offers adaptable stealth solutions to meet diverse operational demands. This system, initially aimed at camouflaging artillery, is exceptionally effective in blending into various terrains, rendering it virtually undetectable. With the new nets weighing about 20 percent less than their predecessors, this bleeding-edge capability enhances both deployment ease and mobility.

Another notable enhancement is the companion mobile application, provided by the vendor, which gives Marines instant access to critical information via their smartphones, further augmenting the system’s utility and ensuring that vital data is always at their fingertips.

Furthermore, in the present security environment—one defined by renewed great power competition– integrating ULCANS is pivotal for enhancing the efficacy of Force Design and operations in contested logistics, particularly within the Expeditionary Advanced Base Operations, or EABO, framework.

“This enhancement significantly improves upon our existing capabilities, offering superior infrared concealment and color matching to operational environments,” said Eric Brown, Deputy Product Manager for Maintenance Support Systems . “It supports the Expeditionary Advanced Base Operations (EABO) concept through ease of deployment and transport.”

Ultimately, this advanced netting system is crucial for concealing and protecting forward-deployed forces and assets in both littoral and broader operational environments, thereby reducing vulnerability to enemy surveillance and strikes. With lightweight sets—weighing between 35 to 40 pounds each—artillery systems, tactical vehicles and trucks, and other key capabilities (including mobile command posts) can be concealed by a small team in less than 30 minutes.

“This fielding is a leap in camouflage technology, providing nets that conceal equipment and personnel from enemy detection across multiple spectrums, including visible and infrared, and reduce radar visibility,” said Theodore Roach, Senior Program Analyst for Shelters, Combat Field Feeding , and Containers Programs . “These innovations not only improve terrain blending but are also lighter and easier to deploy, enhancing operational efficiency and stealth capabilities in diverse environments.”

Force Design and the Joint Force

Force Design—the Corps blueprint for modernization– reconfigures the Marine Corps into a “stand-in force” composed of “compact yet potent units, tailored to engage across the spectrum of competition within contested zones, serving as the vanguard of comprehensive maritime defense.”

One key pillar of this transformative strategy emphasizes the enhancement of joint force and ally interoperability. In this regard, PM CSS has exemplified an intelligent acquisition approach by capitalizing on existing Army relationships to streamline costs and shorten acquisition timelines—ultimately fielding a capability that is easily used across sister services.

According to Roach, “We aligned our purchasing with the Army’s requirements, finding a perfect match with the Marine Corps’ needs. This ensures that whether it’s EABO, supplies, or equipment sharing, it’s seamlessly integrated. Furthermore, when opportunities allow the USMC to sync delivery orders with the Army’s, we will realize reduced procurement through stepladder pricing discounts.”

The collaboration on ULCANS between the Marine Corps and the Army exemplifies a successful joint force endeavor, highlighting the alignment of requirements between the two services. This synergy has facilitated the expedited acquisition of materials, significantly reducing the timeline from requirements definition to material receipt to within a year.

By leveraging existing Army contracts and the groundwork laid in testing and evaluation, the process was streamlined, allowing PM CSS to rapidly access and deploy the camouflage nets. The review of the Army’s test reports, instead of conducting separate tests, sped up the validation process. Consequently, once a fielding decision was made, the nets were quickly delivered, demonstrating an efficient model for future joint acquisitions and interoperability efforts.

Initial fielding of ULCANS began in October 2023 and concluded on 23 December, with training by the New Equipment Training Team already completed. The focus now shifts to expanding the Area of Operations over the next five years, aiming for full operational capability by 2030.


The advent of ULCANS marks a pivotal advancement in the realm of military camouflage, setting new standards for operational stealth and efficiency as the future fight continues to move into the electromagnetic spectrum. By melding cutting-edge technology with strategic interoperability, this system not only enhances the survivability of forward-deployed forces but also fortifies the broader framework of expeditionary logistics. As the geopolitical landscape continues to shift, the integration of innovations like ULCANS will be crucial in maintaining tactical supremacy and shaping the future force—allowing the warfighter to fight and win whenever our nation calls.

Dark Shores to New Horizons

Monday, April 15th, 2024


The corporal dragged his body up the obsidian sheet of sand speckled with other water-logged Marines. He clambered over the peak of an incline, only to find one of his comrades was missing something: his head.

“That kind of woke me up to what we were getting into,” said the nearly 100-year-old Cpl. Donald Raasch, a U.S. Marine Corps veteran.

Raasch, one of the few men still with us today who fought on the island, shared his 14-day experience battling on the black sands of Iwo Jima.

His journey began after he graduated Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego in 1943. He was then assigned to 26th Marine Regiment, 2nd Battalion, 5th Marine Division on Hawaii, where preparations were made to take Iwo Jima from the Imperial Japanese Army. It was on Feb. 19, 1945, Marines began landing on the eight-square-mile island, coming to full strength at 70,000, but the Japanese outnumbered U.S. forces more than three to one.

Although, when Raasch landed, he said he didn’t see many Japanese. They “scurried” to conceal themselves in caves and underground tunnels to observe U.S. forces approach on the volcanic island. Even so, contact was imminent.

“And then I had a little play-catch with a Japanese in a bunker,” he said.

Raasch explained how he slipped a grenade off his belt and threw it into a bunker. He waited for some sort of explosion but heard nothing. He took a chance to peer over the peak, only to see that same grenade hurling back at him. Thankfully – in this case – he had a habit of taping the ignition latch to prevent unintended explosions. Raasch had forgotten to remove the tape before tossing the grenade. As that grenade rolled toward him, he picked it up, peeled the tape off, and threw it back.

“All I saw was his hat flying off in the distance,” he said. “So, I figured his head must be up with it.”

Sometime later, while biding their time on one of the island’s steep ridges, Raasch and the other Marines heard a whistling from the sky. He and his team instinctively jumped to the ground as mortar fire rained down and the Marines found themselves caught in a pitched battle with the cacophony of screams, explosions, shouts, and gunfire.

“It exploded behind me, and it knocked me out,” he said. “I guess what woke me up was somebody hollering ‘corpsman, corpsman!’”

The yelling came from Cpl. Brown, a Marine who Raasch credits for saving his life, but one he never saw again after leaving the island.

“He’s the one that got the corpsman to come over,” Raasch stated simply.

The almost century-old Marine explained that as the corpsman was taking care of him, he saw Brown leaning against one of the nearby ridges, noticing that the corporal also needed some medical attention as his leg had been blown off. Raasch was shocked Brown still called for his aid.

“I do still go through my old books with some of my brothers’ children and talk about that with them”

-Donald Raasch

Raasch was eventually transported back to California to recover from his injuries. He received treatment for his left arm, the only part of which he could move was his thumb, he said. Surgery and recovery took over a year, and he was awarded a purple heart.

Soon after, he found himself leaving the military and trying to acclimate to civilian life in Nebraska. For the next 15 years, he worked for a local power company as a lineman and engineer “climbing polls,” as he said it.

“I just put [Iwo Jima] in the back of my mind,” he said somberly. “You know, when you get back to civilization again, you have to find yourself a job like anybody else to make a living.”

To this day, he continues to share his 14-day story of Iwo Jima with his family members and others.

“I do still go through my old books with some of my brothers’ children and talk about that with them,” he explained. “They like to know that kind of stuff.”

Raasch’s story gives us insight of the battle from his point of view, but taking a step back shows us how significant his experience is. Nearly 40 percent of the U.S. Marine force were killed or wounded during the 36-day battle; about 6,000 were killed and another 20,000 were wounded.

Raasch counts himself among one of the few who had the luck to make it home alive.

As the toll U.S. forces were severe, the Marines officially seized the island on March 26, 1945, boomed by acts of uncommon valor. Symbolic as it was to raise the flags on the volcanic island, taking Iwo Jima also laid a path for the U.S. to destroy Japanese airfields, aiding in the outcome of World War II.

Now, it’s been almost 80 years after the Battle of Iwo Jima, and Raasch is one of the very few men alive today to tell first-hand experiences of the bloodiest battle in Marine Corps history.
