MARINE CORPS AIR STATION CHERRY POINT, N.C. - Sgt. Donald F. Marshall is the assistant data chief for Marine Wing Support Squadron 271, where he is in charge of all the data information in the squadron.

"It is my job to ensure all computer systems are set-up properly, the SharePoint website is updated and permissions are assigned correctly to name a few things," Marshall said. "While I am deployed I have the additional duties of putting together the commanding officers command center. In doing this I am ensuring millions of dollars worth of gear are properly used and set up."
Marshall said he enjoys his job and it shows in the uplifting support he gives his Marines.

"My favorite part of my job is teaching the junior Marines everything I know and seeing the light bulb turn on when they begin to understand," said a smiling Marshall. "I even get excited when they figure something out on their own and I learn something."

Marshall said he faces challenges head on and takes his job extremely seriously and it has been noticed by his superiors.
Marshall was named the MWSS-217 and Marine Aircraft Group 14 non-commissioned officer of the quarter for his dedication and leadership.

"It was an honor and a reassurance that I am doing a good job," said Marshall. "To me it isn't I who won it and benefits from it. My Marines get to brag that they have the best shop. Before they had no proof of it but now they can point to my photo or my award and say 'see we have the best NCO and he is making us better.' I am honored and thrilled to be serving these Marines."
