      The Marine Corps Logistics Base in Albany is gearing up for a big event next week.

      Everyone in the community is invited to the Battle Color Ceremony Monday March 17th at 1 p.m. at the base.

      The Battle Color Detachment is traveling from Washington D.C. for the ceremony and MCLB Commanding Officer Colonel Donald Davis says this is a sign that all is well.

      Col. Davis told FOX 31, "for them to come out to Southwest Georgia to our community to give us a little taste of what folks up there get to see, a little flavor of the Marine Corps, I think it means a lot to the community."

      Officials with the base say the event is free and open to everyone.
