Road Trip: Marine Corps Logistics Base, Albany, Georgia

Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany is a United States Marine Corps base located in Albany, Georgia. The primary mission of the units on the base is to rebuild and repair ground-combat and combat-support equipment and to support installations on the East Coast of the United States. Today, one of MCLB Albany’s most important facilities is the Marine Corps Logistics Command's Maintenance Center.

The base was commissioned on March 1, 1952, as the Marine Corps Depot of Supplies. At that time, Marine Brigadier General R.P. Coffman assumed command and a small contingent of Marines established headquarters in temporary buildings.

Albany was chosen as the site for the logistics base after a two-year search in the early 1950s for a level area convenient to the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean and serviced by road and rail. Albany was also attractive for its inland location, well away from the possibility of saltwater corrosion of the stored equipment, and its adequate workforce.

Today's Marine Corps Logistics Base, Albany, comprises more than 3,300 acres and in 2002 employed more than 2,400 civilians along with a complement of 600 marines. The Albany Maintenance Center is also the home base for the commander of the Marine Corps Logistics Bases, which includes those located at Barstow, California, and Jacksonville, Florida.

The Base mission is to provide comprehensive logistics support to the MARFOR and other customers for the full spectrum of operating and combat requirements; perform the full range of Logistics Center functions for items assigned Integrated Materiel Management responsibility; perform the full range of Inventory Management functions for PEI's subsequent to the acquisition phase.

MCLB Albany performs the full range of logistics management functions to include accomplishing assigned LEM responsibilities in the acquisition of new items of equipment, monitoring fielded Marine Corps weapons systems readiness, cataloging and delegating standardization functions for the Marine Corps, and provides central management for all assets held by the MARFOR.

REST IN PEACE, FALLEN BROTHER!





CWO Don C. Viray, USA, 2nd Battalion, 25th Aviation Regiment, 25th Infantry Division, KIA Afghanistan 19Apr2012



I have fought a good fight,
I have finished my course,
I have kept the faith.
2 Timothy 4:7 (KJV)


God Of Our Fathers



Rest in Peace, fallen brother, rest in peace!
We who remain hold you in high honor.
Rest, fallen brother, in this sacred precinct;
We who remain keep this place sacred.
Rest, fallen brother, among these, your comrades;
We who remain keep the watch.
Rest, fallen brother, among these who answered the Nation’s call;
We who remain press the fight forward in your name.
Rest, fallen brother, lay down thy burden;
We who remain have taken up the torch.
Rest in Peace, fallen brother, rest in eternal peace!

It's a cool picture, just thought I'd let you know.

The MCLB Band was actually a Drum & Bugle Corps up until a few years ago.

Cool. I spent two weeks there in the Depot Maintenance area.

We did depot level tear-down, evaluation, and rebuilding of a few thousand M16s (M16A1E1 to be exact).

And I am going to go brave the construction and see if I can get home on a direct line or have to drive all over the place.

If I miss you, good night and sleep tight. Have fun with Lucy. *HUGS*
