Valdosta - The morning of September 11, 2001 at Moody Air Force Base began just like any other day - normal security levels, routine I.D. checks and training exercises. But terrorists' actions in New York soon changed things.
"We immediately went to the highest security level and did everything possible to protect our base," said Col. Dave Summers.
As knowledge of the terrorist attacks spread, Moody began preparing for war.
"Once I saw the second plane hit, I knew it was terrorism," said Col. Bob Holliway. "Being in the military, I knew we were not going to just sit back and let terrorists attack our country."
Over 400 airmen have been deployed from Moody Air Force Base since September 11th. Holliway is one of those individuals. He states, "When I got there, there were a lot of others from Moody, so I was proud to work with them supporting the War on Terror."
And Moody officials say deployment numbers will only increase.
"It's going to be a long time until this is resolved, so we're doing all we can with the airmen deployed from here and all over the country," said Col. J. C. Cantrell.
One of the greatest impacts felt by Moody since September 11th is the loss of one of their own airman.
"Senior Airmen Jason Cunningham was an integral part of this base and his death had a strong impact on the entire community," said Cantrell.
But despite their loss and the dangers posed, Moody airmen will proudly continue fighting for the land of the free.
