January 16, 2003 from Senator Miller's Office
WASHINGTON, D.C. - This week, Georgia Senators Zell Miller and Saxby Chambliss received assurances that the Navy and the Marine Corps remain committed to Material Command and the missions at Albany.
"I have had several meetings and exchanged several letters with the top brass of the Navy and Marine Corps and I am confident that they are very committed to Albany," Senator Miller said. "This base in Albany is critical to the overall Marine Corps mission as well as to the State of Georgia, and I am very pleased to know that its future is bright."
"I have spoken to the Secretary of the Navy, and he has reassured me that he and the Navy remain committed to the missions at Material Command in Albany," Chambliss said. "This is great news for the people of Albany and those who rely on the continued long term viability of the base for jobs and continued community growth. This is also good news for our military as we continue preparations for possible conflicts around the globe."
Material Command, which ensures the material readiness of operating forces, is based at the Marine Logistics Base in Albany, Georgia.
