ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A change of command ceremony at the Albany Marine Base Friday. Colonel Christian N. Haliday served as commander of the base since June of 2006.

Friday, he turned over command to Colonel Terry V. Williams who says he plans to continue the work Haliday has done integrating the community with the base.

Col. Williams said, "Not only do I plan to continue that, I plan to push it a little further, so we can be better integrated, do more things with the community because I think it's the right thing to do. As we're a reflection of the community, we're Marines who come from the community and it's just the right thing to do."

Col. Haliday said, "Little bit mixed feelings, bittersweet about leaving. Feels a little bit of relief in the job is finished and I'm able to pass it along to another good officer." Col. Haliday and his family are transferring to Installations and Logistics Department at Headquarters, in Arlington, Virginia.
