Experimental Innovation | Houston Marine to Save the Corps $15 Million

Cpl. Ricki D. Clement reverse-engineered an outdated cord, originally meant to connect radios to vehicles, and attached it to a radio tester unit for a radio repairman. Each cord is estimated at around $64,000 and by developing a step-by-step repair procedure, Clement is saving the Marine Corps an estimated $15 million. Cpl. Clement is a micro/miniature repairman with Electronic Maintenance Company, 3d Maintenance Battalion, Combat Logistics Regiment 35, 3rd Marine Logistics Group, III Marine Expeditionary Force.
