Every week, Saluting Seymour and SoundScope highlight an airman serving at the Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in Goldsboro.
Senior Airman Brendan Ridley from the 4th Fighter Wing
Ridley has been in the Air Force nearly four years. His hometown is Rome, Georgia. Ridley is an Aircrew Egression Technician, which means he works on the pilots’ ejector seats. Ridley says the ejection seat is not as complicated as one might think, but that’s after a few years of working on them. Seymour Johnson is Ridley’s first duty station, but he’s looking forward to his forthcoming deployment to Korea. When he has free time, Ridley says he likes to go out to eat downtown or in Raleigh. He says Goldsboro reminds him of his hometown. Ridley says the benefits to an Air Force career include education, medical care, the opportunity to travel the world, and the professional and leadership development.
SoundScope can be heard on Fridays at 6:44 AM on Goldsboro’s Greatest Hits 1150 AM and 98.3 FM.
