Saluting Seymour

Saluting Seymour

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

SrA Ken Boyton from the 4th Fighter Wing

Boyton has been in the Air Force a little over 4 ½ years.  He comes to Goldsboro from Long Island, NY.  Boyton says after seeing the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on New York City at a young age, he started to think about joining the military.  Boyton works in the 4th Fighter Wing’s Public Affairs Office where his duties include photography and community involvement.  Boyton says he’s loved his four years in Goldsboro.  He says he and his wife enjoy seeking out new and different restaurants in the area.  Boyton says the benefits to an Air Force career include education.  As of this interview, Boyton was preparing to deploy overseas, and he was going to have to leave his wife and 10-year-old daughter behind.  Boyton says the Air Force ensures both he and his family back home are taken care of during his deployment.

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.
