Today we celebrated our most prized little heroes during our annual Month of the Military Child proclamation/parade.

Colonel James C. Carroll, Commanding Officer, Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany, said to the crowd, “we urge the citizens of Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany to become involved in the lives of our military children through volunteerism, active parenting and simple recognition.”

For several minutes, we marched from the Child Development Center, here on base, to Covella Pond where kids simply had time to do what they know best, have fun!

Join us in celebrating the Month of the Military Child!

It’s a time when we honor the sacrifices made by military families, but most importantly, the nearly two million “total-force dependent children” worldwide.

Dorothy Bryant, director, Child Development Center, Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany, says more than 100 children are enrolled at the CDC here on base.

“We’re here just to help them know the importance of what our role is to support them, love on that child, and give them all that they need to help improve their skills to become productive citizens in the future,” she added.

A Month of the Military Child Parade and Proclamation Ceremony will be held at the CDC, Friday, April 13 at 2:00 p.m.

Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany hosted a Vietnam Veterans Commemoration Breakfast at the Town and Country Ballroom to honor, recognize and celebrate those who served in and during the Vietnam Era, April 4.

The nearly sold out event made Army Vietnam Veteran Ezekiel Tarver, who served from 1968-1969, feel very honored.

“It means so much to be here today because back in those days we were not celebrated or honored for our service. It’s a blessing to be back in the United States alive and I’m here to represent all the ones who passed away in combat,” he said.

Tarver added, “Being here with my fellow veterans gives me inspiration and makes me want to go on...”

A group of Marine Corps officers from MCLB Albany spent part of the day learning about Black History around Albany, Georgia as part of their professional military education.

In addition to a tour of the Albany Civil Rights Institute, they enjoyed lunch at the Grille House and had a windshield tour through downtown. The group ended their day at the Resora at Cypress Pond, February 28.

“As part of this community, it’s important that we learn about all of the rich history that exists in a place we call home for a few years. The tours were very insightful and not only a celebration of Black History, but American History,” said Lt. Col. Michael Cagle, executive officer, MCLB Albany. “We have a better understanding of not only the demographics, but their history here.”
