First Sgt. Derrick A Sims dances with a Cherry Point Bay resident during the 10th annual Valentine’s Day dance hosted by the Cherry Point Bay Nursing and Rehabilitation center Feb. 11. More than 30 Marines and sailors with Marine Wing Support Squadron and 2nd Low Altitude Air Defense Battalion volunteered as dates for the residents. “I hope the residents here have fun tonight that is my biggest wish for this event,” said Sgt. Antwan L. Jackson, a motor transport operator with MWSS-274. “I hope two things are taken away from this, that the Marines learn the importance of volunteering and the residences have a great time.” Sims is the Alpha Battery first sergeant for 2nd LAAD.
