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 evening, ML...((HUGS))...it has taken me forever to get back in FR. I keep getting white screens. And even the Preview requires at least 2 tries.

Lots of cancellations today.
There is a nasty virus going around...first few weeks of school!

We pray before the service.
It’s a good thing we do. :-)

Good morning to everyone at the Canteen. Rain cooled 72º here. We had about one inch of rain during the night. Never heard a thing.

Guess whooooooo else got rain? :)
Only 1/4 inch...
making a bit over 4" for the year.
Not nearly enough to end the drought!
Hope all of you have a GREAT Tuesday...
...and no more "excitement" at work!
It's cool (70ish) and cloudy--my fav weather pattern! :)
((((hugs))))

Good morning LUV and (((HUGS))). I looked at my other gage and it has just about .5 so I don’t know which one to believe.

Howdy, EGC! (((hugs)))

It’s going well....have a day off on this lovely cloudy day. Will be coming up sort of your way on Thursday. Looking forward to it. Hope it’s cooler and doesn’t rain while I’m on the road! :)

Hope you and Bo have a good day!

I know...sometimes you don’t know what to believe, but at least we both got SOME rain! We’re so low for the year!

We are close to normal rainfall, but no runoff rain to fill the lakes. Lake Travis is getting close to a record low elevation and is only 30% capacity. That is the main water source for most of the Austin area.

That’s pretty scary! Hope y’all get some good fall rains! (and us, too!)
I’m so tired of water restrictions! I know you and all Texans are!

I was hoping the tropical system in the gulf would head our way, but looks like it will do little to help here.
