Goodwill and AmeriCorps helped military personnel in the Valdosta area Tuesday who were preparing to leave active duty.

The organizations held a workshop at the Goodwill Valdosta Career Center.

The goal was to help military members understand what services, benefits, and jobs are available to them and how they can take advantage of those opportunities.

"[It] makes us feel great to help any and everybody in our community, especially our military because they've done so much to help us," said career center coordinator Carla Gervin.

Several hundred Airmen from Moody Air Force Base could soon be released from the Air Force due to military cuts.
