ALBANY, GA (WALB) - You may notice some of the results of the military surge under way in Afghanistan right here in south Georgia.

In recent weeks there has been a surge in the number of trucks carrying equipment and supplies in and out of the Marine Corps Logistics Base.

Base officials wouldn't talk to us on camera.

In a statement, the base said "Historically, Logistics Command has regular periods of increased and decreased activity. This is one of those increased activity periods."

They also said any increased activity at MCLB Albany is a result of the continuing support of the Global War on Terror.

Supplies are moving from Albany around the clock and headed around the globe, and South Georgians might have noticed the increased truck traffic on the roads.
