Cherry Point Marine named outstanding employee

Despite the serious injury, Simpson remained on active duty and continued his Marine Corps career. In 2008, he was promoted to the rank of staff sergeant and was awarded the Gung Ho Award for being an inspiration to his fellow Marines while attending the Staff Non-commissioned Officer Academy Career Course, according to the release.

As the senior non-commissioned officer in charge of advanced aircraft electrical systems technicians at CNATT, he is responsible for the training, qualification and scheduling of seven electrical systems instructors, and is also the command’s voting assistance officer.

Simpson is to be officially recognized during an awards ceremony later this year at the Pentagon.
