Saluting Seymour

Every week, Saluting Seymour and SoundScope highlight an airman serving at the Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in Goldsboro.

Senior Airman Alex McFarland from the 4th Fighter Wing at the Seymour Johnson Air Force Base.

McFarland has been active duty in the Air Force for three years after serving as a reservist in Ohio.  His hometown is Warren, Ohio.  McFarland says his transition from reservist to active duty was pretty seamless.  McFarland is an Electrical and Environmental Specialist at Seymour Johnson.  He says his electrical experience will be useful in a post-Air Force career.  He’s also going back to school for electrical engineering.  McFarland has been in Goldsboro for three years, and he says he likes the area.  During his free time, McFarland and his family enjoy spending time in Raleigh or over in Jacksonville where he has more family.  McFarland says education, income and healthcare for his family major benefits to an Air Force career.
