Members of the 820th Base Defense Group and Veterans of its precursor, Operation Safeside came together at the biannual Safeside Reunion, held at Moody Air Force Base May 15 through 18.

The original members of this security forces unit were tasked with going outside the wire to provide base defense during the Vietnam War, just as the 820th BDG does today during Operation Enduring Freedom.

"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."

Bound by blood, service: Army, AF brothers meet while deployed after being separated for 10 years

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

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."
