Albany-- Southwest Georgia school children are benefiting from a MCLB overhaul.

These computers are being replaced due to a government directive for the Marine Base to upgrade to a new Internet system.

Instead of tossing the equipment, MCLB is donating the computers to local schools.

Colonel Joseph Wingard says, "So we have taken the computers that we use to use and have made sure that they are very good to go with all the accessories we need and have prepared them for the schools that have asked for those computers."

Donating the overhauled equipment is part of a larger Department of Defense program to give excess computers to schools that need it.

Terrell County got the majority of the equipment.
