July 16, 2004

Albany - After two years of service,  the commander of the Marine Corps Logistic Bas is saying goodbye. Commanding officer Colonel Joseph Wingard transferred command of the base to Colonel John Lopez today.Wingard says he'll miss Albany and MCLB but he knows he leaves both in good hands.

 "I do feel good about the base. I feel very good about leaving things in General Lopez's hands and I feel like we have the right people in the right place now," says Wingard.

"What I bring to the base is a second pair of eyes and a fresh and different leadership style," says incoming commander Col. John Lopez.

The new commander isn't new to the base. He's served there as director of studies and analysis for a year.

Now with the change of command Colonel Wingard and his family are headed back to his home town of South Carolina where he will serve at a base in Paris Island.
