Moody ships out more hardware to Mid-East

January 20, 2003

Lowndes County - Hundreds of troops have been deployed to the Middle East, now their equipment is being shipped over.

Monday, two Pavehawk helicopters were loaded onto a C-17 aircraft at Moody Air Force Base and flown to the Persian Gulf.

"The helicopters will be used for combat search and rescue missions, primarily by the Pararescue Jumpers," said Sgt. Jay Taylor.

This is the first major equipment load that's been shipped out of Moody.
