Valdosta - Moody Air Force Base prides itself on the support it gets from surrounding counties.

Friday, Moody returned the favor and honored some community leaders.

In a change of command ceremony, some Civic leaders were named honorary commanders at Moody.

Mayor Peggi Shipman of Remerton served as honorary command chief master sergeant.

The leaders will now get a behind the scenes look at the base and its operations. 

"You drive by here, you see what's here, you hear through the media and through other folks what Moody does for you but when you spend time with them on their turf you definitely respect what they do day in and day out," Mayor Shipman says.

The honorary commanders will hold their titles until next summer when they'll pass the flag onto other leaders in the community.
