Mission: MCLB (hurricane ready)
Sat, 01 Aug 2009 01:11:52 GMT —
Hurricane season is here and the Marine Corps Logistics Base is making sure their facilities are ready.
The base serves as an evacuation site for many military members. The MCLB has brand new field showering units for evacuated troops. The five facilities include six sinks and 12 showers each. It's a small but much appreciated part of the care the base provides for military members. One of the most important things for an evacuee is a shower facility. In fact, these shower units include privacy. Retired marines say it's a big improvement from years past when everyone bathed in an old canvas tent.
The MCLB's public works crew is very efficient in their set up. They can be ready for evacuees in a matter of hours.
