CHERRY POINT, N.C. - Pfc. Charles L. Williams, Jr., a warehouse clerk with Marine Aircraft Group 14, gives essential gear to units and minimizes the time they spend waiting for it.
The warehouse is filled with everything from desert utilities to ceremonial guidons and water cans. Units come in every day to check out these supplies according to their mission needs.
It is Williams' job to drive the forklift, issue deployment gear, and get assets to garrison units. Without a Marine in Williams' position, distribution and tracking of unit supplies would be a difficult task.
Williams said his favorite part of the job is issuing deployment gear because he gets to meet new people, see new gear and he appreciates the recognition often extended by unit leaders.
“Once in a while you hear a sergeant major or a captain saying, ‘you guys are working great. Get them in and get them out,’” Williams said.
