Marine Corps honors its family

By Wainwright Jeffers - bio | email

MCLB-ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Being a part of the military doesn't mean you'll always be home or around family.

But the military tries to make it as family oriented as possible. Saturday MCLB show their appreciation to families and base personnel.

During the month of November the Marine Corps shows their appreciation to those who serve and the family who support them, with fun games and activities.

We talked to one family who say the gesture means a whole lot.

"Right now family is the most important thing, because if my family is not happy I know my job is not going to be fully productive," said Master Sgt. Rolanda Bailey, MCLB Albany.

"The commandant of the Marine Corps wants to let his families know that he appreciates everything the do every day," Paula Caserio, Marine Corps Family Team Building.

Earlier this month the Marine Corps celebrated its 235th birthday, there are just more than 200,000 active duty Marines in the U.S.
