Valdosta - The future of a major project that could be located at Moody Air Force Base is unclear after the firing of the Air Force Chief of Staff last week.

Defense Secretary Robert Gates asked General Michael Moseley to resign after a Pentagon investigation found "a chain of failures" in the security of US nuclear weapons.

Moseley was a key player in the Common Battlefield Airmen Training program or CBAT.

Moody is competing with two other bases to be home of the program which will train airmen for ground combat.

It would bring 14,000 airmen to the base each year.

Air Force officials say they are unsure if new leadership could mean more delays in getting the program up and running.

Site selection was suppose to take place last January.
