Moody A-10s to deploy to Europe

LOWNDES CO., GA (WALB) - The U.S. Air Force will deploy a dozen A-10 Thunderbolt IIs to Europe this Fall,  as a continuation of the Air Force calls their "theater security package," in support of Operation Atlantic Resolve.

Airmen and support equipment will also deploy from the 23rd Wing at Moody Air Force Base to participate in events in Central and Eastern European NATO countries.

The Air Force  says this mission is an ongoing way the America helps meet security commitments in Europe.

The A-10 "Warthogs" will conduct training alongside NATO allies and partners to strengthen their working relationship, and to demonstrate U.S. commitment to the security and stability of Europe.

Moody says more details and specifics will be available closer to the deployment.
