Every week, Saluting Seymour and SoundScope highlight an airman serving at the Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in Goldsboro.
Tech Sgt. Bradley Ivey from the 4th Fighter Wing
Ivey has been in the Air Force for 14 years. His hometown is Linden, NC. He says, growing up around Fayetteville, he had often thought about military service. Ivey is a Floor Supervisor in the Armament Backshop at Seymour Johnson, and his duties include taking care of the aircraft mission equipment including the bomb racks and launchers that support the weapons on the F-15s. Ivey says he enjoys his work. Seymour Johnson is one of Ivey’s only two duty stations. He was also stationed in Alaska and he says he’s excited for his upcoming return assignment at Eielson Air Force Base. Ivey has been stationed in Goldsboro about seven years. He says Goldsboro is just big enough to have everything his family needs, and he and his wife are hoping to retire in the area. During his free time, Ivey and his family head outdoors to the beaches, the mountains, or just for a local hike. Ivey says he is very thankful to have had great leadership and mentorship during his Air Force career.
SoundScope can be heard on Fridays at 6:44 AM on Goldsboro’s Greatest Hits 1150 AM and 98.3 FM.
