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.

Good morning, Everyone.
Good morning to our

military, our allies, and their families

Thank you, Lauren, for preparing the Canteen for today’s activities.
I don't remember ever hearing about this base.
But then I could be having a "senior" moment.

~ Today...Widespread showers
and scattered thunderstorms this morning...
Then partly sunny with a chance of showers
with a slight chance of thunderstorms this afternoon.
Highs in the lower 80s.
Southwest winds 10 to 15 mph with gusts up to 35 mph.
Chance of rain near 100 percent.

~ Tonight...Mostly cloudy.
A slight chance of showers and thunderstorms in the evening.
Lows in the lower 60s.
West winds 5 to 10 mph...
Becoming north after midnight.
Chance of rain 20 percent.

Fingers crossed that this morning won't be as hectic as yesterday.
It's raining, so no morning walk,
which means a little more time at the Canteen.

Time to make my rounds before others show up and want something.
Please stay.
Don't touch that dial. And, remember – I’ll be watching!

The FR Canteen is

Come on in and sit for a while.
There's always plenty of coffee,
tea,
pancakes,
conversation,
silliness,
and plain old BS

REMEMBER THEM

DEFENDERS OF FREEDOM

FR CANTEEN MISSION STATEMENT

Showing support and boosting the morale of our military and our allied military and the family members of the above.
Honoring those who have served before.

((LOL))HAPPY MAYDAY TO YOU TOO, TOMKOW6!!!!!:-D

Well, the storm alarm went off a number of times last night. We had a number of weather warnings issued for parts of Oklahoma. There was some signficant damage in Medford OK from a Tornado last night.

Had a great visit with my sister yesterday. Also took my weed-eater to my uncle's to see if he could put a brand new piece of line in it.

Not much else went on yesterday. I did take Bo out to the lake. We had a great time out there.

Good morning, Biglook! We have yet to get the tomatoes into the ground. I would appreciate any tips you might be able to pass along - I've been doing this for many years but I'm always looking for better ways to do things.
