Saluting Seymour

Every week, Saluting Seymour and SoundScope highlight an airman serving at the Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in Goldsboro.

Sgt. Erin Holmquist from the 4th Fighter Wing

Holmquist has been in the Air Force about ten years. She graduated high school at age 16, but she didn’t know what she wanted to do when she grew up.  Her family helped steer her toward the Air Force.  Holmquist is a Medical Laboratory Technician, and she says her training and certifications would serve her well in a career outside of the Air Force.  Holmquist says adapting to new bases and towns can be difficult for airmen.  In her personal experience, Holmquist actually got to adapt to her new surroundings in the Goldsboro area thanks to a local family.  That helped show Holmquist the need for the new Adopt an Airman program at Seymour Johnson.

Information on the Adopt an Airman program can be found online at the Seymour Johnson Air Force Base website.
