Members of the Riverside Youth Advisory Council visited March Air Reserve Base today on a tour with the 912th Air Refueling Squadron.  The group received briefings from pilots and maintainers from the 912th while visiting and touring a KC-135.

"I can't believe you can actually refuel other planes while your flying," one student exclaimed. "You've got be really good to do that."

Military members were eager to show the kids around the aircraft and their audience was equally eager to learn.

"Not everyday you get to teach kids about what we do here," a 912th maintainer mused. "It awesome that they have so many questions."

The Youth Advisory Council is a youth led high school leadership council that provides advice, assistance and  recommendations on youth related issues to the Board of Supervisors and County Departments. In addition, the Youth Commission focuses on anticipating the educational, recreational and cultural needs of youth by working together to host meaningful events that the community will benefit from.
