Every week, Saluting Seymour and SoundScope highlight an airman serving at the Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in Goldsboro.
Airman 1st Class Louis Valdez from the 4th Operations Support Squadron
Valdez has been in the Air Force since May of 2020. He comes to Goldsboro from San Antonio, Texas. Valdez says, with so many other family members already veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces, it was almost inevitable he also join the military. Valdez is in training for the Air Traffic Control Tower where he’ll be responsible for directing the planes in the sky as well as the equipment and vehicles on the ground. Valdez has been in Goldsboro about one year. He, his wife and daughter have enjoyed hiking at Cliffs of the Neuse. They’ve also enjoyed a trip to the beach after his son was born. Valdez says the Air Force’s medical benefits are very useful, especially as they were recently welcoming their son into their family.
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.
