Dougherty County- About 52 members of the 4th Marine Division reserve unit from New Orleans have been living in hotels in the area for about three weeks.

Over the next few days, they'll move into the units which have been furnished with everything from appliances to silverware.

"It's a good opportunity for Marines to look after Marines here in the community. We've had great support from the local community, Albany, as we as civilian enterprises," says Cpl. Isaac Pacheco.

"It's a good feeling to be a part of something like this where you can help the displaced families," adds Brad Pangle.

There's no firm word on long the families will live on the base, but they could be there until spring.
