ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Albany Marine Corps Logisitics Base wished a fond farewell Thursday morning to a long time civilian employee.
Mike Houston is retiring from the base after 33 years of service. A full retirement ceremony was held on the grounds to honor his work - much of which was spent constructing and implementing a SASSY Management Unit - a computer based system that aids in supplying materials and equipment to troops serving in combat.
"I'll look back with nostalgia, but it's time to go. It's time to let the young ones come up and assume the duties. And they can do those duties. I'll always look back on this fondly and I'll miss it and all the people here," siad Houston.
Houston received several awards for his service including a letter from the President George W. Bush and an American flag that flew over the U.S. Marine Corps War Memorial at Arlington National Cemetery.Feedback
