As the days get longer and the Georgia heat intensifies, more people look to the outdoors for recreation. Along with the increased temperatures, the number of Team Moody injuries tends to elevate with it.

"We have people out doing high-risk activities more in the summertime because the weather permits," said U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. AmyLynn Koehler, a 23d Wing ground safety NCO in charge of hazard abatement and reporting.

The reporting of injuries is meant to help improve conditions for Team Moody, especially during the summer months.

New name brings changes for playgroup

The interactive playgroup formerly known as Tater Tots has been renamed to Moody Family Connections Playgroup in an effort to reach more children and families.

The newly renamed playgroup is designed to show more of a family aspect. A change of the name isn't the only thing that's different. The playgroup has also added some new activities for the children such as games, sing along, dancing and playtime.

"While changing the name I also looked into adding 4 year olds to the group's original ages of 6 months to 3 years old," said Windy Scott, 23d Force Support Squadron Exceptional Family Member Program coordinator. "Allowing children 4 years of age to participate gives us more time to watch how the children interact and behave before they get to school."

The ejection seat is the pilot's last option if something doesn't go according to plan and if it wasn't for these Team Moody Airmen, pilots wouldn't be able to evacuate an aircraft.

Deployed from Moody Air Force Base, Staff Sgt. Keith Billings, Senior Airman Garron Theriault and Airman 1st Class Mark Armstrong work as egress technicians assigned to the 455th Expeditionary Maintenance Squadron. These Airmen maintain all the A-10 Thunderbolt II aircraft's Advanced Concept Ejection Systems ensuring all the mechanical components to include the pilot's seat and cockpit explosives, function properly.

"Every time we come down here the guys treat us extremely well," said Alan Fox, a former mortar crewman during Operation Safeside. "They always ask questions. I think they appreciate us a lot and understand what we did."

An airman deployed from Moody Air Force Base, Ga. reunited with his brother when the missions of the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Army crossed paths here April 29.

U.S. Air Force Senior Airman Matthew Beck, 25 and U.S. Army Staff Sgt. James Beck, 35, had the unique pleasure of having family around while deployed to the remote location in Southwest Afghanistan.

Matthew, who is with the 577th Expeditionary Prime BEEF Squadron Consolidated-Small Maintenance and Repair Team at Kandahar Airfield, Afghanistan, and James, Bravo Company 1st Battalion 36th Infantry Regiment here, knew for a while they both would be deployed at the same time, but had no idea that supporting the overseas contingency would let them cross paths.

23d WG commander issues DUI message

This post was originally published by Moody Air Force Base - Moody News

May 21, 2013 in Georgia, Moody Air Force Base by clevine

The number of Airmen caught driving while under the influence is up this year from last, and the 23d Wing commander wants every Airman to know how serious DUIs are.

As of April, Team Moody has 15 total DUIs, putting the base on track to exceed the 27 DUIs for all of 2012.

"The way I view DUIs and the way I think the wing has to attack them is, first and foremost, recognizing it's a personal responsibility not to drink and drive," said U.S. Air Force Col. Billy Thompson, 23d WG commander. "They have to know it's a willful choice they're making. It's a criminal act and they will be treated like criminals if they're caught. That's the bottom line."
