Named after the tragically-killed Major George Putnam Moody, Moody is an Air Force Base of the U.S.A. located in Lowndes County. It is very close to the city Valdosta, Georgia. Home to the 23rd Wing, Moody is a very important U.S. air military base.
The educational facilities on the base, offered to recruits are very good as they will be trained by the 479th Flying Training Group's Air Education School. The base was opened in 1940 and it is also home to various aircraft, such as F-4E-39-MC Phantoms, F16Cs and many others. The base has a total area of 1 km2 and it garrisons no less than 993 people. It is also the place were present-day President George W. Bush was militarily educated.
Historically-speaking, the base has always served as a pilot-training base, so there are no active combat missions assigned here. However, the training facilities are used at a maximum. The 23rd Fighter Group Wing has a very symbolic logo, a panther with wings going down with a lighting bolt. It means strength and determination, joined together by power. The base's Commander is Colonel Kenneth E. Todorov. The local attractions are the air shows provided by Moody AFB and, apart from that there isn't much to be seen around. However the educational facilities in the near-by Valdosta are very good, and the housing and accommodation services of Moody also. Military training is done by the book!
Moody has received press on the 9th of November 2007, on the occasion of its humanitarian actions to the Moody medical clinic and the jogging and fitness contest organized by the Moody troops.
