Lowndes County - A change of command took place Wednesday at Moody Air Force Base.

The base changed from Air Combat Command to Air Force Special Operations Command. It's leadership and funding will now come from Hurlburt Field in Florida.

Moody will take charge of the 563rd Rescue Wing at Davis Mothan Air Force Base in Arizona. The change could also bring the addition of new aircraft and supplies.

"I think the base, the Valdosta community, and all of Lowndes County will be pleased with transition from ACC to AFSOC," said Lt. Gen. Paul Hester. "This is going to be a very positive change."

No personnel will be relocated to or from Moody and it's combat search and rescue mission will stay the same.
