South Georgia Loves Moody Week March 12th-17th

Staff Report From Valdosta CEO

Monday, March 12th, 2018

Berrien, Cook, Lanier and Lowndes counties are celebrating the Airmen of Moody Air Force Base and their families. There will be events and activities during the week of March 12th to 17th.

The Association of Defense Communities is a national organization focused on community-military issues. They recognize military communities and regions that go above and beyond to improve the quality of life for service members and their families. Defense communities work every day to make their installations and military families feel welcome, hence the recognition as a Great American Defense Community.

“The men and women who serve our nation deserve our full support whether they are on a mission abroad or on duty at an installation closer to home,” ADC President Bill Parry said. “Communities have found many ways to show service families that they are welcome on both sides of the installation fence, and the Great American Defense Communities program has quickly become an important way to highlight their successes.”

Also included in the 2018 class of GADC is the Chesapeake Science & Security Corridor, near Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland; the Greater Fort Knox region in Kentucky; the San Diego Region; and Tampa Bay, Florida.
