MCLB may host National Guard

May 7, 2004

Dougherty Co. -- The Marine Corps Logistics Base may become the new home of the Albany million to $20 million joint reserve facility at MCLB Albany.

The move would improve training capabilities for the Guard and expand MCLB's mission. "The base can grow. So putting an additional facility out there executes that part of the mission," said Leland Burkart of the Chamber Military Affairs Commission. "By improving it's military value, both to the service and to the Department of Defense."

Congress would have to approve it. If that happens, equipment from the National Guard Armory on North Monroe Street will be moved within the next month.
