MCLB Honors former band

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany Marine Corps Logistic Command officials spent this afternoon honoring a legendary band.

The former Albany Marine Band was honored today.

It was formed in 1990 with 50 members.

The Marine Corps deactivated the award-winning band to save money in 2012.

The Band's former Director was there today to help unveil the new display showcase that honors the band.

"And I think that everyone of them would be proud of this day just to know that their  heritage is preserved for centuries," Christian Flores former band director said.

The showcase also plays music, including the Logistics Command fight song, Freedom Shield.
