The 8th Civil Engineer Squadron welcomed Marine Wing Support Squadron 172 firefighters from Camp Foster to train on structural burns at Kunsan AB, Mar. 9, 2023.

Based out of Okinawa, Japan, the MWSS 172 primarily focuses their firefighting techniques on aircraft and airport response procedures, while the 8th CES specializes on containing structural fires.
