ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Martin Luther King Celebrations are kicking off here in Albany.
Wednesday, a service at the Marine Corp Logistics Base had folks on their feet.
Keynote speaker Lieutenant Colonel George Lampkin was honored for his service at MCLB, but he says the focus should remain Dr. King and others who paved the way for many like him.
"It's nothing that I've done. It's the struggles of those that went before me the struggles of my mom my grandmother all of those who have been apart of the Civil Rights movement," Lieutenant Colonel George Lampkin said.
Lampkin is the Junior Deputy in the C4, or command, control, communications, and computers division at MCLB.
