ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany Marines and family members take a trip around the world right here in Albany. Thursday, MCLB Albany held a Unity multi-cultural day to introduce folks to different cultures like Asian/Pacific Islands, Native American and Hispanic.

Lt. Sarah Ray grew up in a military family in Hawaii. As a Marine, she says she's proud of the diverse make-up of the military which is generally a melting pot of people.

Lt. Ray said, "It brought a lot to my life and made me more aware of just different struggles people have gone through, unfortunately, and also just how beautiful everyone can be and I think it's great the Marine Corps is taking this time and this day to embrace everyone's cultures so we can learn about them."

After being treated to music by the Marine Corps band, visitors had the opportunity to sample foods from around the globe.
