Romantic melodies drifted to the dance floor as Marines and sailors from Marine Wing Support Squadron 274 and 2nd Low Altitude Air Defense Battalion danced with elderly residents of Cherry Point Bay Nursing and Rehab Center during its 10th annual Valentine’s Day dance Feb. 11.
Residents of the facility picked their date for the evening from more than 30 Marines. “The turn out here is phenomenal,” said Cpl. Justin L. Daniels, a motor transport operator with MWSS-274. “I have done a lot of volunteer work with this home, and I have never seen such a great turn out of Marines and sailors who came.”
