Sgt. Wiliam T. Carey
Job Title: Radar Repairman
Hometown: Lakeland, Fla.
DATE JOINED: MAY 28, 2007
Sgt. William T. Carey is a radar repairman whose job is to keep the large scale radar systems up and running.
“It is my job to maintain and operate these radar systems here at Marine Air Control Squadron 2,” said Carey. “I perform preventive maintenance and corrective maintenance as well.”
Casey said his job has him turning wrenches everyday but he has a secondary job, which is leading the junior Marines assigned to him as well.
“It is my job as an NCO to lead by example for my junior Marines,” said Carey. “I take a lot of pride in the way I handle myself and the way these junior Marines learn is through the example I set for them. The more you can dig deep inside of you to keep focus and do the best you can do no matter what the situation, shows a lot of your character.
"If you can say at the end of each day, 'I did my job to the best of my abilities,' then you can do that anywhere your life takes you," said Carey.
