The new Commanding General of the Logistics Command at Albany's Marine Base says as the war winds down in Afghanistan... workers there will be busy this year.
Major General John Broadmeadow says 2014 will be a "dynamic year" because much of the equipment still used in the war in Afghanistan will be coming to Albany for retrograding.
He says logistics command workers will get that equipment ready to go again as soon as possible for the Marines' next mission.
"We get that equipment either put into storage," said Broadmeadow. "We divest ourselves of that equipment or we reset it and we get it into condition to go back out to the operation forces."
General Broadmeadow says under sequestration the Marines will shrink from a war time force of 202,000 personnel to 176,000 Marines.
