What’s your job?

My job is to supply, maintain and issue out all the materials and supplies to help keep the mess hall running smoothly as well as keeping it clean.

What’s your favorite aspect of your job?

My favorite thing about my job is knowing I am doing something to help maintain the mess hall’s upkeep.

What’s the most challenging part?

The hardest part is actually during hurricane season. As the weather conditions worsen, it is my job to arrange with all the units aboard Cherry Point to get the number of Marines who use the mess hall and arrange for MREs to be transported from Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. Then I have to keep them stored and ready just in case the mess hall gets destroyed.

How does your job support the mission of 2nd MAW and MCAS Cherry Point?

We help maintain the mess hall so that the Marines and Sailors have a well maintained and healthy place to come and eat their meals.
