Periodically, there is a gap when a person filling a billet leaves before his or her replacement arrives. That is when we employ Space Ghost to get us through these gaps, mostly just to
sign papers and such. From 14 Jun to 1 Aug 2014, Cherry Point was without a Facility Officer as Maj Schmitz left for Parris Island on his next assignment. This happened again from 15 Jun 2017 to
27 Jul 2017 when Maj Hernandez departed for California.
