Every week, Saluting Seymour and SoundScope highlight an airman serving at the Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in Goldsboro.
Staff Sgt. Blake Chambers with the 4th Fighter Wing
Chambers has been in the Air Force about 6 years. His hometown is Fairhope, Alabama. Chamber says he wasn’t quite sure what he wanted to do with his life, and the Air Force helped provide him direction. Chambers is a Munitions Controller at Seymour Johnson, which means he handles anything that is explosive on the base. Seymour Johnson is Chambers’ only duty station, and he says he enjoys Goldsboro. He says he enjoys hiking and exploring the Goldsboro area. Chambers says education is a major benefit to an Air Force career. Chambers is doing Skill Bridge, which means he’s getting out of the Air Force six months early but he’ll still get paid as he interns as a paralegal at a local law firm. He also appreciates the organization and life lessons serving provides.
SoundScope can be heard on Fridays at 6:44 AM on Goldsboro’s Greatest Hits 1150 AM and 98.3 FM.
