Valdosta - A Moody Air Force Base airman, killed in Afghanistan, now has a permanent memorial at the base.

In a naming ceremony, the base unveiled the Michael H Maltz First Term Airmen and Professional Enhancement Center.

Master Sergeant Maltz was killed in a pavehawk helicopter crash in Afghanistan in March 2003.

He was a member of the 38th Rescue Squadron out of Moody.

His portrait will also hang at the center so his story will be known to all airmen who serve at the base.
