Company with MWSS 371 go a run Sgt. Zachary Scanlon

Marines from Marine Wing Support Squadron 371, Headquarters and Support Company wait in line for field mess after a 3-mile run at Cannon Air Defense Complex a satellite extension of Marine Corps Air Station Yuma, Aug 24. Staff Noncommissioned Officers throughout MWSS 371, H & S Company served the junior Marines breakfast to help boost camaraderie all through the ranks.

YUMA, Ariz. - Marine Wing Support Squadron 371, Headquarters and Support Company took to the roads for a motivational run at Cannon Air Defense Complex, Aug. 24.

This was first time H&S had a company moto run together. It’s great because the shops don’t get to work together a lot, added Lance Cpl. Liliana Sandoval, a MWSS-371 fiscal clerk and a native of Los Angeles.

The Marines with H&S Co. work out within their respective shops but during the companywide run were able to see some fresh faces.

For MWSS-371, working together as a company is important to ensure the squadron runs like clockwork.

To help this engine keep going, the company’s senior leadership makes sure to show how much they appreciate and know the importance of junior Marines.

“The staff noncommissioned officers know the Marine Corps does not move without the junior Marines,” said Master Sgt. Exton Hurt, a MWSS-371 operation chief and a native of East Chicago, Ind. “With this moto run, we can show that we know that.”

To demonstrate this, the Staff NCOs served the Marines breakfasts afterwards.

Moto runs are also a tradition in the Marine Corps and upholding these customs is essential to being a well-rounded Marine.

“A great man once told me, ‘Ain’t anything finer like a company of Marines that is dressed to the right and aligned’,” said Sgt. Carderous Mahone, MWSS-371 S-6 platoon sergeant and a native of Atlanta, Ga.

If that statement holds true, the Marines from H&S Co. are continuing on the fine traditions of the corps.
