Every week, Saluting Seymour and SoundScope highlight an airman serving at the Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in Goldsboro.
Airman 1st Class Dakota Allen with the 4th Maintenance Group
Allen has been in the Air Force a little over one year. Her hometown is in the West Virginia-Ohio area. Allen says she is the first in her family to join the military, and there weren’t many options for her future in her hometown. Allen is a maintenance scheduler, so she ensures aircraft are inspected and safe for the pilots. She says her job involved a lot of hands-on training once she arrived at Seymour Johnson. Allen has been in Goldsboro just over one year, and she says she likes the options available in town. During her free time, Allen likes to head out to eat or stay home with her husband and pets. Allen says there are quite a few benefits to an Air Force career including healthcare, education, pay, and improved discipline.
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.
