Every week, Saluting Seymour and SoundScope highlight an airman serving at the Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in Goldsboro.
Senior Airman Charles Cope from the 4th Fighter Wing
Cope has been in the Air Force for four years. His hometown is Springville, Alabama, where Cope says he had always wanted to join since he was young. Cope is a Weapons Troop, and his duties include maintaining the weapons systems on the jets. Cope says he finds his job fulfilling. Cope has been in Goldsboro for about one year after being stationed in England. He says the experience overseas was great as he and his wife were able to travel across Europe during his assignment at Lakenheath AFB. Cope says he loves Goldsboro and he and his wife don’t plan on leaving any time soon. During his free time, Cope says he enjoys bowling and riding motorcycles. Cope says an Air Force career provides stability, including a steady paycheck, healthcare and education.
