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.
