U.S. Marine Col. Terrence W. Reid, a Rock Hill native, recently assumed command of the Marine Corps Logistics Command’s maintenance depot in Albany, Ga.
The base employs about 2,000 civilians who refurbish a range of military vehicles, many of which are bound for troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Reid said the urgent nature of the work done there is never lost on him or those he commands.
“We have examples where our equipment has saved lives,” he told Qcitymetro.com. “Everybody here knows that.
“If you walk though here and talk to the people,” he said, “everyone here has a brother or sister or cousin who is serving or has served.”
Reid graduated from Rock Hill High School in 1980 and earned a business degree from the University of South Carolina. His previous command was at the Marine Aviation Logistics Squadron in Okinawa, Japan, where he commanded 800 Marines.
Reid is a 24-year veteran of the Marine Corps. He assumed the command on Friday, July 17, replacing Col. Daniel Gillan, who is retiring from the military.
Reid is married with two children.
