Detachment 2, Supply Company, Combat Logistics Battalion 453
The mission of Detachment 2, Supply Company, Combat Logistics Battalion 453, is to train and field Selected Marine Corps Reserve Marines to augment the active-duty component by providing task-organized, direct support and intermediate-level ground supply support to the operating forces as well as being prepared to deploy worldwide as operational situations dictate.
The Marines hail all over Southwest Georgia, North Florida and even parts of Alabama. They represent various backgrounds and civilian occupations: college students, firefighters, law enforcement officers, railroad workers, lifeguards, correction officers, accountants and mechanics. This diversity brings many additional skill sets to enhance their MOS and combat skills training. Thus, Detachment 2 is able to fully complete its training with the opportunities that are available.
The Detachment also aggressively supports and assists the base and local community in many ways. Some examples are (list is not inclusive): providing color guard and funeral details, casualty assistance and the annual Toys for Tots Program, which provides gifts for less-fortunate children in the Southwest Georgia area. At the Detachment, an Inspector-Instructor staff provides equipment, training, administrative and logistical support necessary for the Marines of Detachment 2 to accomplish its mission in the most efficient and proficient manner possible.
