With an unprecedented show of force, Headquarters & Headquarters Squadron obliterated Marine Wing Headquarters Squadron 2 during their annual Field Meet at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, N.C., Aug. 31, 2018. Under the searing North Carolina sun, H&HS became back-to-back champs with a lop-sided score of seven to two, in a contest that usually is not decided until the final moments.

Marines brought their game faces to the field as they competed against all ranks. The units faced-off in events including a tug-of-war, a timed pull-up competition, CO/XO/SgtMaj relay race, and volleyball matches.

The Field Meet encouraged Marines to showcase their best performance, embracing Marines’ competitive nature. In the end, the most daunting challenge was having the H&HS command staff lug the enormous trophy off the field.
