MOODY AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. - Over 200 members of the 23rd Maintenance Group and 23rd Fighter Group from Moody Air Force Base are returning home from a deployment to Kandahar Air Field, Afghanistan this week.

The Airmen maintained, equipped and flew the A-10C Thunderbolt II, providing the A-10's unparalleled air to ground capabilities in support of Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and Airmen in Afghanistan.

All their operations for the last six months were in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.

Moody is the home of the Air Force's legendary "Flying Tigers" and continues that tradition today with over 1300 Airmen deployed around the world supporting contingency operations.

Last year, 23rd Wing assets provided combat air support missions, as well as rescue, and medical evacuation support resulting in over 1,800 lives saved in Afghanistan.
