MCLB-ALBANY -- Colie Young, the deputy public affairs officer for Marine Corps Logistics Base-Albany, is accepting a position with the tenant command of the installation.

Young has accepted a position at the communications office for Marine Corps Logistics Command and will be leaving his position with the base public affairs office effective Feb. 24.

"A wonderful opportunity opened up in the Command Communication Office (CCO) within the Marine Corps Logistics Command and I was fortunate enough to compete and get the position," Young said in a statement. "The mission of the CCO is similar to that of the (public affairs office), in that it is communication-driven. I am excited at the opportunity to advance my career and am happy to be able to still work with the outstanding Marine and civilian-Marine workforce here in Albany.

"I hope to maintain a close working relationship with the professionals at the base public affairs office as well as those media professionals in the local community."

He has been with the public affairs office since September 2005.
