Saluting Seymour

Saluting Seymour

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

Airman 1st Class Graham Holmes from the 4th Equipment Maintenance Squadron

Holmes has been in the Air Force just over two years.  His hometown is St. Louis, Missouri, and Holmes says he joined so he wouldn’t have to pay for college.  Holmes works in Aircraft Metals Technology, and his duties include repairs, welding, and fabricating metal parts for the jets.  He says training was not as complicated as you might think, and instructors broke down the steps in simple ways.  Seymour Johnson is Holmes’ first duty station, and he’s been enjoying the area for about a year and a half.  During his free time, Holmes likes to head to the beach.  Holmes says the benefits to an Air Force career include education and insurance.
