Raw, real, and uncut!!! These Navy Junior Reserve Officer Training cadets are getting a taste of what it takes to become a Marine.

For the first time ever, more than 40 cadets from Dekalb County will be staying here at Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany for a week-long summer camp.

And from the looks of this greeting, it will be a very intense five days as they learn about basic leadership training.

Good luck cadets!!!!

CONGRATULATIONS: For the first time since taking the post, Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany Commanding Officer Alphonso Trimble recognized one civilian-Marine with a prestigious award.

This afternoon, Sendy Potts, Director, Manpower, received the Meritorious Civilian Service award.

Ms. Potts was instrumental in facilitating mutual beneficial partnerships between the installation and local governments that reduced operating and service costs, diminished risks and enhanced community relationships and is expected to save the installation hundreds of thousands of dollars over the next few years.

Congrats Sendy Potts!!!
