Valdosta - A South Georgia military base is hoping its role in U.S. defense will help protect it from closure.

At the Valdosta-Lowndes Chamber of Commerce's Salute to Military breakfast Thursday morning, the crowd was briefed on Moody Air Force Base's standing concerning BRAC.

Base officials say Moody's regional economic impact along with its various rescue, security, and training missions should make a difference. "Every fighter pilot that enters the United States Air Force goes through Moody, and the bases that we're protecting over in Iraq and Afghanistan are protected by your people from Moody in the 820th Security Forces Group," said Col. Bradley Heithold.

Moody is the largest employer in Lowndes County, with more than 4,000 Air Force personnel and about 1,400 civilian workers.
