Lowndes County -It's been two years since Senior Airman Jason Cunningham was killed while rescuing wounded troops in Afghanistan. Thursday, Moody Air Force Base honored Cunningham today by naming its Airman Leadership School after him.

His parents and widow flew in from New Mexico for the ceremony. Theresa Cunningham says its an honor that her late husband is now part of Air Force history. "Now that Jason's such a part of the stories that are told while other Airmen go through the school is amazing to me," said Theresa Cunningham.

"Jason was always trying to make things better, Jason shared everything he had, and he was always willing to help," said Chief Don Shelton.

Last year, Cunningham was posthumously awarded the Air Force's highest honor, the Air Force Cross.
