Every week, Saluting Seymour and SoundScope highlight an airman serving at the Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in Goldsboro.
Master Sgt. Aaron VanVynckt with the 4th Fighter Wing
VanVynckt has been in the Air Force 20 years. He was living in Mishawaka, Indiana when he joined. VanVynckt works in the Contracting Squadron at Seymour Johnson, so he helps procure items and services the Air Force does not provide organically for the base. VanVynckt says he developed into the Contracting Officer after initially working in Avionics. With 20 years in the Air Force, Goldsboro is NOT VanVynckt’s only duty station. He’s also been stationed in Mississippi, South Carolina, Germany and Guam. VanVynckt has only been in Goldsboro about five months. In the midst of the pandemic, VanVynckt is still working to learn what the Goldsboro area has to offer. VanVynckt says there are so many benefits to an Air Force career including travel, education and career direction.
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.
