The Marine Corps Logistics Command (MARCORLOGCOM) at Albany, Georgia, comprise a depot maintenance complex that provides worldwide expeditionary logistics support to the Fleet Marine Force (FMF), other forces, and agencies.
The repair facility operates as a multi-commodity Marine Depot Maintenance Center. The Marine Depot Maintenance Command (MDMC) is an integral part of the Marine Corps Logistics Base, and works closely with the other organizations in carrying out the mission of the base, which is to provide logistics support to Marine Forces that will maintain continuous readiness and sustainment necessary to meet operational requirements.
The MDMC is capable of supporting Marine Corps ground combat and combat support equipment as well as other customers with similar needs. Personnel are cross-trained to apply common skills to work on a variety of equipment in different commodities. This affords the MDMC the flexibility to rapidly realign their work force to meet the changing requirements of the FMF and other customers. It should be noted that while the MCs' capacity for each major commodity is highly flexible, their total capacity is relatively constant.
