Albany - The commander of the 23rd Wing at Moody Air Force Base says Moody's role as a base is changing. Colonel Joseph T. Callahan, III told Albany Rotarians that BRAC has had a positive impact on the base and is increasing the size from about 4000 people to 5000.

He says he expects to see further changes and additional missions to come there, primarily focusing on air to ground combat. Colonel Callahan says, "We'll all be focused on one thing and that is obviously the war over in the our area of responsibility in Iraq and Afghanistan. All of our organization will now work for a single person, ninth air force Commander, Lt. General Gary North, so it will really smooth out our line of communication and our chain of command whether we're here state side or we're over in the middle east." 

Colonel Callahan also discussed some of the current construction underway at the base.
