Highlighting Cherry Point's warriors.
What’s your job?
I supply the water needs for Marines at forward operating bases for things like drinking water, showers and heavy equipment operations.
What’s your favorite aspect of your job?
My favorite aspect is that we’re able to directly support Marines on the ground and the importance of our job really shows.
What’s the most challenging part?
The most challenging part of our job is learning all the small components of the water purifying gear we use.
How does your job support the mission of 2nd MAW and MCAS Cherry Point?
Water is essential for Marines’ well being and it also plays a big role in many Marines’ jobs.
How does your job differ from garrison to the field?
In garrison we maintain our gear and ensure that all Marines are up to date on their job responsibilities, whereas in the field we make sure Marines always have the water they need.
