One of Dougherty County's largest employers, the Maintenance Center at the Albany Marine Corps Logistics Base, has a new military commander.

Colonel Peter Underwood relinquished command to Colonel Kevin McCutcheon. Underwood has commanded the Maintenance Center for the last two years, as the Marine Vehicle Armor program was set up.

Colonel McCutcheon comes to Albany from Germany, where he worked at the European Plans and Operations Center. He said he visited hospitals in Germany where troops wounded in the Middle East war on terror were being treated.

Colonel McCutcheon said Albany's Maintenance Center is a well running facility, and he will make sure it stays on course. Colonel Underwood was presented the Legion of Merit Award for his work in Albany. Underwood's next assignment is in Rhode Island as an instructor at the Naval War College.

The Maintenance Center currently has more than 1,200 civilian employees, but that is expected to grow as more equipment in need of repair is returned from the Middle East.
