Lowndes County - After a long day of meetings, flying, and interaction with hundreds of airmen, Four Star General Don Cook gives Moody Air Force Base two thumbs up. "They've got a great program here, training excellent airmen, and producing brave men and women to defend our country," said Cook.
Wednesday was General Cook's first visit to Moody as Commander of Air Education and Training, but he's no stranger to the base. Back in 1974, Cook was stationed there as an instructor pilot. "A lot has changed since then, but they're definitely moving in a positive direction," said Cook.
Cook spent most of his visit with the 479th Flying Training Group, and says their job is the of the air force's most important. With tensions rising in the Middle East, training is becoming more and more vigorous. "Our country's status has definitely tightened things up with the training," said Cook. "As you can hear overhead, we've always got training going on."
And as head of recruitment command, Cook says Moody and the entire U.S. air force is more than meeting its recruitment goals. "I think we're actually exceeding our goals because more and more youngsters are signing up every day."
Though much has changed since he was stationed here more than 20 years ago, General Cook says he's proud to have been part of the Moody family and the future looks nothing but bright for base.
