Sgt Florea was the Radar Chief at MCAS Cherry Point from 4 Jan 05 to 1 Mar 05. Rarely does a Sgt hold such
a high billet, but Sgt Florea was needed to fill this position during the deployment of GySgt Bowling. Consequently, Sgt
Florea barely got his feet wet when he received orders to become an instructor at NAS Pensacola. After returning once again to Cherry Point,
he deployed with MACS-2 in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and then went to OCS to become an officer.
