CHERRY POINT, N.C. — Lance Cpl. Alexander W. Nuse joined the Marine Corps with hopes of being an infantryman. However, Nuse did not get his dream job, but instead became a food service specialist at the chow hall on Cherry Point.

“Although I didn’t get infantry, I still love what I do,” said Nuse. “I love cooking and I am very passionate about it.”

Before he joined the Marines, Nuse use to cook all the time back home in Jamestown, N.Y., where he went through two years of culinary school.

“I’ve always loved cooking,” he said. “Cooking takes away any stress I have and allows me to focus, pushing all other distractions out of my way.”

Nuse said cooking is like a vacation and it allows him to take a break from real life for a few hours.

“The freedom that comes with being a cook is amazing,” he said. “I’m glad I ended up here, and I couldn’t be happier.”
