Seymour Johnson Air Force Base is a United States Air Force base located in Goldsboro, North Carolina. The base is named for Navy Lt. Seymour A. Johnson, a test pilot from Goldsboro who died in an airplane crash near Norbeck, Maryland, on March 5, 1941.
In August 1940 the War Department designated the airport as essential to national defense. In December 1940, $168,811 was authorized for the construction of a U.S. Army Air Corps Technical Training School. Local officials began working to have the field named in honor of Lieutenant Johnson. Seymour Johnson is the only Air Force base named in honor of a naval officer.
Units marked GSU are Geographically Separate Units, which although based at Seymour Johnson, are subordinate to a parent unit based at another location.
