Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany is located in the southwest section of Georgia. Albany is approximately 3 hours south of Atlanta, 1.5 hours north of Tallahassee, Florida and 2 hours east of Montgomery, Alabama. Macon, Columbus, and Valdosta are each approximately 1 hour away. You’ll find that the cost of housing and other living expenses in the Albany area is low to moderate.
On March 1, 1952, the Marine Corps Logistics Base in Albany was commissioned as the Marine Corps Depot of Supplies. By 1954, the station was sufficiently complete with warehouses and administration buildings – to assume supply support for Marines east of the Rocky Mountains and in the Atlantic area. In 1967, the Center became Storage Activity and Depot Maintenance Activity. In 1990, the Commandant of the Marine Corps designated the Commanding General, Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany to also be Commander, Marine Corps Logistics Bases. The reorganization placed control of MCLB – Barstow, CA; Blount Island Command – Jacksonville, FL, as well as Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany under this single command. In response to emerging changes, the Commandant approved the merger of the Marine Corps Material Command and the Marine Corps Logistics Bases to form a single command – The Marine Corps Logistics Command – creating MarCorLogCom – on May 8, 2003. In conjunction with this realignment, the Marine Corps Systems Command was realigned as a separate field command under Headquarters, U.S. Marine Corps.
The mission of MCLB Albany is to provide worldwide, integrated logistics/supply chain and distribution management; depot level maintenance management; and strategic pre-positioning capability in support of the operating forces to maximize their readiness and sustainability and to support enterprise and program level total life cycle management (TLCM).
