Poteat’s Sept. 18 homecoming from a seven-month deployment in the Middle East makes this ceremony and “day of play” at Disneyland especially bright. Poteat, who enlisted in the Marine Corps in 1996, will be joined by his three children, nephew, niece and wife, Clarice, an advisor to the 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit’s family readiness team.
Gunnery Sgt. Derrick Poteat, a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom from the 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit’s S-6 communication platoon, will be recognized by Disneyland Resort and Sylvania as he and his family “flip the switch” on myriad lights blanketing “it’s a small world” Holiday, transforming the popular attraction into a visual wonderland and officially launching the holiday season at Disneyland Resort.
