Lowndes County - A South Georgia military base is changing commands.

Moody Air Force Base will soon transfer administrative control from Air Force Special Operations Command to Air Combat Command. Base leaders say the change is neccessary because their Search and Rescue Mission is more closely aligned with Air Combat Command.

There will be no increase or reduction in staff and the base's mission will stay the same. The only change the community will notice is the patches the airmen wear on their uniforms. 

"All the BRAC moves that have been planned will still carry out and there will be no changes to those whatsoever.  There are some things that will work in our favor, such as the A-10's that are coming here are currently part of the Air Combat Command and now the rescue forces that are also here at Moody Air Force Base will be part of the same majcom," said Col. Joseph Callahan.

Base leaders aren't sure yet when the change in command will take effect, but they expect to know in about 30 days.
