ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The new commander of the Logistics Command at MCLB said that he has been impressed by the support of the community in his short time at the base.

Brigadier General James Kessler spoke to WALB Friday afternoon. He praised the work of the employees of the Logistics Command, especially the civilian workforce. He said that even though the main theater of war is moving from Iraq to Afghanistan, the mission of the command should not be dramatically different.

"Afghanistan is obviously a different place. Different environment. So the demands on equipment may be different. The mission of the Marine Corps Logistics Command will remain to support the war fightwer as far forward as we possibly can," said General Kessler.

General Kessler has been at the base for almost two months. Before coming to MCLB he was the director for manpower management at the Marine Base in Quantico, Virginia.
