Every week, Saluting Seymour and SoundScope highlight an airman serving at the Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in Goldsboro.
Staff Sgt. Devin Zimmerman with the 4th Contracting Squadron
Zimmerman has been in the Air Force for nearly 11 years. His hometown is Roxboro, NC, and he says he was looking for better prospects after graduating college. Zimmerman is a Contracting Specialist, so he drafts, modifies and does administrative work for any contracts offered to outside vendors. Before becoming a Contract Specialist, Zimmerman worked cable maintenance and as an antennae specialist for the Communications Squadron. He has served at a few other bases, including Korea which Zimmerman says he loved. Zimmerman calls Goldsboro “great!” He and his family live in Clayton, and he appreciates being close to his hometown. During his free time, Zimmerman does online racing as part of the Air Force Gaming League, which has gained popularity during the COVID-19 pandemic. He says the benefits to an Air Force career include stability and meeting great people.
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.
