Sgt. Maj. Scott D. Grade assumed responsibilities as the new sergeant major of Marine Wing Headquarters Squadron 2 from Sgt. Maj. Mario P. Fields during a ceremony here today.

Fields will remain here at Cherry Point and assume the duties with Marine Attack Squadron 542.

He says that he will cherish the time he spent with his Marines and Sailors and looks forward to seeing the unit continue to progress under Grade’s leadership.

“As a team, we had many accomplishments,” he said. “It was evident when the MWHS-2 Marines and Sailors earned the II MEF Chesty Puller Award for superior performance.”

Grade is coming from Marine Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Squadron 2 aboard the air station. He said he looks forward to leading the “Snake Eyes.”

“It is an honor and privilege to be working with the Marines and Sailors of MWHS-2,” said Grade.
