Gov. Perdue visits Moody

January 9, 2004

Lowndes County - Governor Sonny Perdue says keeping Moody Air Force Base off the list of base closures is a top priority for the state.

Perdue stopped in Lowndes County Friday to visit the base. He got an up close look at the Moody's many resources, and says he's proud of the work its airmen are doing overseas.

With the next round of BRAC coming up in 2005, Perdue thinks the diversity of Moody's missions and its important training will keep it safe. "What I want to take back to the military policy makers, the Secretary of Defense, and even the President is that we still have many things to be utilized here at Moody, and we don't want it to be threatened," said Perdue.

Moody Air Force Base recently changed commands from Air Combat to Air Force Special Operations to help diversify its missions and spare it from the next round of base closures.
