Saluting Seymour

Saluting Seymour

Every week, Saluting Seymour and SoundScope highlight an airman serving at the Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in Goldsboro.

SSgt. Anthony Ricchetti with the 4th Security Forces Squadron

Ricchetti has already been in the Air Force for six years, and he decided to extend for one additional year.  Ricchetti comes to Goldsboro from Englewood, Florida.  He comes from a big military family, and his father was in the Marines.  Ricchetti says he always wanted to be a police officer, so security forces was a natural fit.  When his time with the Air Force is over, Ricchetti says he may go back to his hometown to pursue a career in law enforcement.  Ricchetti’s first base was in Italy, and he says he misses the Italian cuisine.   He says he’s enjoying his time in Goldsboro, and he says he can’t resist casting a line in all the small ponds around the area.  Ricchetti says travel is a major benefit to an Air Force career.

SoundScope can be heard on Fridays at 5:44 AM and 6:44 AM on Goldsboro’s Greatest Hits 1150 AM and 98.3 FM.

    Today’s uniforms look like a rag bag including the one he is wearing. Gone are the days of taking pride in your appearance and your uniform. What ever happened to pressed uniforms? Even the BDUs could be pressed and look great. When I see today’s military in town in uniform I just cringe. There was once a time when you could not wear your utility uniform in town other than to stop at a fast food restaurant. Not Wal-Mart or the grocery stores or even walking around downtown. If they are going to look so bad the least they could do is restrict the utility uniform to short fast food places. Did I mention the fact that some smell like jet fuel walking around town? Come on Commander get a grip on your people!
