Albany salutes local troops at Rise n Shine breakfast

Marines were honored at the Albany Chamber's Rise-N-Shine Breakfast Wednesday

Members of the military were honored at the Albany Chamber's Rise and Shine Breakfast Wednesday morning.

City leaders woke up extra early to say thank you to our troops and show marines at the MCLB that they are appreciated.

"It's overwhelming to be appreciated this way and to be invited out to not only represent the base but to represent the military as a whole, it's overwhelming to be honored this way," said Lance Cpl. Jason Womelsdorf.

Lance Cpl. Jason Womelsdorf was one of four marines to be honored as "Marine of the Quarter".

The event was held at the Doublegate Country club this year.
