Lowndes County - A South Georgia military base is lending a hand to another base who felt the force of Hurricane Ivan.

Fourteen airmen from Moody Air Force Base left on a humanitarian mission to Hurlburt Field in Ft. Walton Beach Florida Friday. Their C-130 plane was filled with tarps, nails, and other equipment they'll use to repair buildings and homes damaged by the storm.

"These are what we call expedient repairs, repairing roofs primarily and trying to prevent any further damage from the water and high winds they experienced at Hurlburt," said Lt. Col. David Carlon.

"It's our chance to go down and help them and I'm sure if it was us, they would be down to help us," said Master Sergeant Fredrick Belford.

The airmen are part of Moody's Civil Engineering and Logistics Readiness Squadrons. They'll be gone for about a week.
