Every week, Saluting Seymour and SoundScope highlight an airman serving at the Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in Goldsboro.
Staff Sgt. Shawn Rivera from the 4th Logistics Readiness Squadron
Rivera has been in the Air Force over four years. His hometown is San Antonio, Texas. Rivera says he wasn’t really feeling college, and his father, who is former military, convinced him to join. Rivera is with the 4th Logistics Readiness Squadron and he describes his job as “the UPS of the Air Force.” His duties can include shipping all types of aircraft parts. Seymour Johnson is Rivera’s first duty station, but he recently returned from an overseas assignment in Kuwait. Rivera and his wife live in Raleigh. When he has free time around the area, Rivera says he likes to golf and eat out at Jay’s Sushi and Burgers. Rivera says education and travel are major benefits to an Air Force career.
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.
