Every week, Saluting Seymour and SoundScope highlight an airman serving at the Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in Goldsboro.
Airman 1st Class Bethwel Waitiki from the 4th Logistics Readiness Squadron
Waitiki has been in the Air Force just about one year. He was born and raised in Kenya, and Waitiki was most recently a resident of Casper, Wyoming. He says he joined the Air Force for personal development and educational opportunities, as well as the challenge it brings. Waitiki is a vehicle mechanic with the 4th Logistics Readiness Squadron, and he says his training sets him up for a post-Air Force career. He ensures ambulances, fire trucks, cop cars and other vehicles are mission ready. Waitiki was a graphic designer, and he did not have any background in vehicle maintenance before joining. Waitiki has been at Seymour Johnson just about six months. He loves playing soccer during his free time, and he loves barbecue. Waitiki says the benefits to an Air Force career include life skills like personal development, discipline, and time management.
SoundScope can be heard on Fridays at 5:45 AM, 6:45 AM and 7:45 AM on Goldsboro’s Greatest Hits 1150 AM and 98.3 FM.
