Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany

History

On March 1, 1952, the Marine Corps Logistics Base (MCLB), Albany was commissioned as the Marine Corps Depot of Supplies. By 1954 the station was sufficiently complete with warehouses and administration buildings to assume supply support for Marines east of the Rocky Mountains and in the Atlantic area. In 1967 the Center became a Storage Activity and Depot Maintenance Activity. On January 17, 1990, the Commandant of the Marine Corps designated the Commanding General, Marine Corps Logistics Base, Albany to also be Commander, Marine Corps Logistics Bases. The reorganization placed control of Marine Corps Logistics Base, Barstow, California; Blount Island Command, Jacksonville, Florida, as well as Marine Corps Logistics Base, Albany under this single command. In response to emerging changes, the Commandant approved the merger of the Marine Corps Material Command and the Marine Corps Logistics Bases to form a single command the Marine Corps Logistics Command creating MarCorLogCom on May 8, 2003. In conjunction with this realignment, the Marine Corps Systems Command was realigned as a separate field command under Headquarters, U.S. Marine Corps.
