Every week, Saluting Seymour and SoundScope highlight an airman serving at the Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in Goldsboro.
Airman 1st Class Maxim White from the 4th Fighter Wing
White has been in the Air Force for two years. His hometown is Gastonia, NC, and White says he joined because he says the Air Force is the leader in cutting edge technology. White is a Conventional Maintenance Support Technician with the 4th Munitions Squadron. He is part of the team that assembles the bombs that go on the jets. White was recently certified as a Master Resiliency Trainer, and he’s currently the lone A1C in the Air Force to attain that certification. That means he teaches mental health skills and resiliency techniques to the new airmen. White says Seymour Johnson was one of his top base picks. White loves checking out the local restaurant scene during his free time, and he’s a fan of pulled pork barbecue. White says the benefits to an Air Force career including advancing his personal vision of science. He’s hoping to commission as an officer and become a nuclear chemistry researcher.
