MARINE CORPS AIR STATION CHERRY POINT, N.C. - Sgt. Maj. Mario P. Fields will assume his post as Marine Attack Squadron 542 sergeant major next week at the squadron hangar.

Fields will be taking the reins from Sgt. Maj. Robert T. Roddy Jr., who retired from active duty.

“I am stoked to take over as the senior enlisted advisor for ‘542,” said Fields. “This squadron has an extremely rich history, and I know they will surpass expectations in all their future endeavors.”

Fields comes to VMA-542 from Marine Wing Headquarters Squadron 2.

“My expectations for these Marines are to continue building on the already well-known legacy of this squadron,” said Fields.

Fields personal awards include the Bronze Star Medal, Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal (second award), and Military Outstanding Volunteer Service Medal. Fields also holds an Associates of Science degree in Business Management from Park University.
