Officials at Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany welcomed Sandra Deal, wife of Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal, Tuesday.
The First Lady of Georgia is scheduled to visit three of the state’s military installations that have been grant recipients of the Governor’s Office for Children and Families, which includes MCLB Albany.
The primary goals of the grant are to increase family and unit cohesiveness, and increase employment opportunities. Additional benefits include preparing youth for a safe and healthy transition into adulthood, improving skill sets of military spouses and youth, and providing résumé building opportunities.
Deal and members of her office and her grant review staff were greeted by base commanding officer, Col. Don Davis, participants and volunteers who highlighted benefits, events and programs the base implemented from the funding.
This is the second year MCLB Albany has been awarded this grant.
