WIN UNTIL THE END
Welcome to Marine Corps Logistics Base (MCLB) Albany, Georgia, one of the ‘greenest’ military installations in the Department of the Navy and a place where safety and the creative uses of energy technology have become our signatures. The base is also home to our largest tenant organization, Marine Corps Logistics Command (MARCORLOGCOM).
Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany is located in Southwest Georgia, just a few hours from some of Georgia’s and Florida’s most beautiful beaches and home to nearly 4,500 military, civilian and contract personnel. The base was commissioned in 1952 and is spread across approximately 3,600 acres in Dougherty County.
More than 40 tenant commands share space at our installation, to include Marine Depot Maintenance Command (MDMC) – a subordinate organization under MARCORLOGCOM. Marine Depot Maintenance Command personnel repair, build and modify all types of ground combat equipment, combat support and combat service support equipment for the Marine Corps, as well as other agencies. The strong partnerships that exist amongst our tenant organizations serve as the foundation and cornerstone of the installation.
The team of professionals at MCLB Albany truly understands the meaning of their service. Our guiding principles embody exemplary leadership, personal accountability, discipline, integrity, respect of self and others and safety in everything we do.
One of the staples here is our renewable energy efforts. Currently, we are leading the way for the entire Department of the Navy in our quest to become the very first DON installation to achieve Net Zero. This means very soon the base will be an energy-efficient installation where the annual energy demand will be fully met by renewable energy produced on site. Our energy stewardship and efficiency efforts not only benefit our installation, but also help the local community.
Furthermore, MCLB Albany is consistently recognized as having one of the most comprehensive and credible safety programs throughout the DOD. We are one of only three Marine Corps installations recognized by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration as a Voluntary Protection Programs Star site. Achieving this prestigious designation demonstrates our commitment to safeguard our military and civilian employees, their family members and all who visit our base. In addition, our programs are designed to assist our tenant commands in their quest for safety excellence as well.
Numerous recreational opportunities exist in and around the city of Albany. You can enjoy the outdoors to your heart’s delight; whether it is boating, fishing, golfing, hunting or a host of other activities. Albany is also home to two institutions of higher learning as well as a good mixture of private and public schools.
Many wonderful opportunities exist here which has helped me develop my leadership philosophy of “we will win until the end.” This means no matter the trials, struggles or obstacles that surface in the middle of a mission or along our journey, we will adapt and overcome. We are committed to ensuring the success of our customers, our community and the entire MCLB Albany team.
That’s a snapshot of our base. The Albany area is a great community to be a part of and my team at MCLB Albany joins me in extending a hearty Southwest Georgia welcome to you.
