The local community is critical to the success of the 4th FW mission and has been since the base opened in 1942. The strong partnership between the base and surrounding area is evident, the City of Goldsboro adopted its new city motto, "Be More, Do More, Seymour," to highlight the strong ties between the community and the base. Team Seymour continues to foster this mutually beneficial relationship. The base is actively involved in improving the quality of life for community members. Events such as the annual STARBASE week motivate rising 5th grade students to explore science, technology, engineering and math as they continue their education. Through STARBASE, students are encouraged to set goals and achieve them. Seymour Johnson AFB also offers a monthly tour programs through the Wayne County Chamber of Commerce, where community members speak to dedicated airmen and get a first-hand look at how the base accomplishes its mission. The 4th FW was born from volunteers, and the airmen today remain dedicated to volunteering in the community. If Wayne County has a need, Seymour Johnson airmen will step in to help. The servicemembers stationed at Seymour Johnson AFB are eager to give back to a community filled with military retirees and veterans who served before them and a community of people always so eager to serve and support the Air Force.
