Col. Todd W. Ferry, former Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Cherry Point commanding officer, is presented with a plaque by Cherry Point Fire and Emergency Services as a token of their appreciation for his hard work and dedication to the emergency services. Under Ferry’s leadership Cherry Point Fire and Emergency Services became the only emergency services agency in the Marine Corps to be at 100 percent staffing.
“It’s just a way of saying thank you for everything he did for our department and our agency during his three years as the commanding officer of the air station,” said Nicholas Salter, MCAS Cherry Point Fire chief.
Ferry addressed the firefighters and thanked them for their dedication during Hurricane Florence that tore through North Carolina in 2018, and multitude other calls the unit answered.
“It comes with the relationship, the time spent down in the firehouse with the men and women in all three fire stations,” said Ferry. “Watching them do their job, day in and day out through big events like the air show and even bigger events like Hurricane Florence.”
Ferry turned over command of the air station to Col. Mikel R. Huber on Aug. 2, 2019, and is currently awaiting appointment to become Marine Corps Installation East deputy commander.
