MCLB's leader to transfer

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Col. Don Davis, Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany's commanding officer, will relinquish command in late May, transferring to the U.S. Northern Command (USNORTHCOM) in Colorado Springs, CO.

"It really is, and will continue to be, hard to put into words just how much the opportunity and my tenure of command here in Albany has meant to me and my family," Davis said. "Southwest Georgia will always hold a significant place in my heart and be a place I know I can always call home, even if not physically here. I know the Base, community and region as a whole will embrace the rest of our current staff and my successor with the same open arms and a willingness to continue moving forward toward continued progress, prosperity and partnership."

Colonel Davis assumed command of MCLB Albany on May 25, 2012. Prior to that, Davis assumed command of 2d Supply Battalion, 2d Marine Logistics Group, Camp Lejeune, NC, serving through May 2008. 

During this period, he deployed with the battalion to Iraq as the general support logistics battalion. He was selected to attend the Marine Corps War College, Quantico VA; he graduated in June 2011.

He was Operations Director for Marine Corps Logistics Command and deployed to Afghanistan as the Commanding Officer for Marine Corps Logistics Command Forward.

Colonel Davis is a graduate of the Advanced Logistics Officers Course and the Marine Corps Logistics Education Program at Penn State. He also holds a Master's Degree in Public Administration from Webster University, graduating with high honors in March 1996.

His many awards include the Bronze Star, and Meritorious Service Medal.
