Albany - Retirement is not necessarily an ending, it's the beginning of a new phase.

MCLB's Deputy Commander R. Ken Trammell entered that new phase Thursday morning.

Trammell is retiring from his senior executive service position and heading to Tennessee. He explains, "I'm going to be working with the University of Tennessee, moving to Knoxville, and helping to establish an Aerospace and Defense Transformation Center there. They have a very large logistics program."

Trammell served in the Air Force from 1973 until 1980.

He began his civilian Marine career in 1992.

Co-workers say he's passionate about family life, enthusiastic about work and has a great vision for the future.
