Operation Moody Transition hosts first employer seminar

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -  Employers in and around Valdosta are learning about the value of hiring Moody Airmen.

Moody Air Force Base is set to release several hundred Airmen from active duty beginning in September because of military budget cuts. Tuesday morning, members from Moody, the Department of Labor, and the Valdosta-Lowndes county Chamber informed employers about what skills the Airmen will have and how those skills can be vital to their businesses.

The goal is to keep as many Airmen as possible in South Georgia once they're released.

"I think it's a win-win opportunity," said Major Darren Hill, with Operation Moody Transition. "We have some very highly qualified veterans with some hard and soft skills to give to the local community. And, it benefits the local community because you have some viable candidates to immediately come into your work force."

There is no word yet on exactly how many Airmen will be released.
