HISTORY OF THE COMMAND: On March 1, 1952, the Marine Corps Logistics Base (MCLB), Albany as it is now known, 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. Formal schools training in maintenance and supply sources of various types were conducted.

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.

Albany provided exceptional support to the Marine Air Ground Task Forces sent to Southwest Asia. The MCLB, Albany military and civilian team's hard work and dedication, combined with equal efforts from MCLB, Barstow and Blount Island Command, reaped outstanding results, possibly the most successful logistical support in history.
