Team Moody spouses packaged cookies for dorm Airmen during the Annual Moody Airmen Cookie Drive, Dec. 4-5, here.
Local organizations, Airmen and spouses donated more than 8,000 cookies to approximately 700 dorm residents to show appreciation for the Airmen during the holidays.
“Some of [the Airmen] might not be able to go home, whether they can’t afford it or have to work,” said Danielle Curley, spouse of Col. Michael Curley, 23d Fighter Group commander. “So it’s just a little holiday cheer to say ‘Thanks, we’re thinking of you, and hope you have a wonderful holiday.’”
Airman 1st Class Brandon Brantle, 23d Force Support Squadron personnelist and dorm resident, expressed his gratitude for events like these that support the Airmen on base.
“I’m not going home for Christmas and that can make anyone feel down,” Brantle said. “Events like these are helpful because they remind me of home and make me feel like someone was thinking of me. It’s nice to know that somebody cares enough for the people not going home.”
