ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A Sergeant Major Relief and Appointment Ceremony was held at the Marine Corps Logistics Base in Albany Friday morning.    

Sergeant Major Conrad Potts passed on the Non-Commissioned Officer's sword, which symbolizes the office of the highest ranking enlisted Marine, to Sergeant Major Kenneth Agee.   

Sergeant Potts is also retiring from the Marine Corps after 32 years of service.

He says he plans to take a trip to the Florida Keys, take some time off and then get a job back on the base.

"It's surreal," Potts said. "It hasn't really hit me yet. My wife told me this morning, she said it probably won't hit you until you realize that you're not putting on that uniform anymore. Today I got to put it on, I'll take it off, but I won't ever put it back on after this stage."

Agee comes to MCLB Albany from 6th Marine Corps District, serving as Recruiting Station Jacksonville's Sergeant Major.
