Unit at Loring:  42 FMS (Engine Shop)

First day at Loring:

Left Sheppard on August 25,wearing summer uniform, got to Loring on Sept. 3 in same uniform and was quickly chew out for not having Blues on. What a diffenence in temp. that was.

Most memorable experience:  

getting to meet a lot of different people and making friends that I have to this day.

Last Day at Loring:  

Had just been married for 2 months, so I got signed out everywhere, went back to Caribou, picked up the wife loaded the car and was gone. O, we were also in a snow storm at the time, but didn't matter we were heading south.

What did you do after Loring?

Got married in Edmundston N.B. 3 months before leaving Loring, was living in Caribou for that short time. Discharged on Dec. 1st. Loaded the car and headed for Rhode Island. Jobs were at a premium in '59 so had to take what I could get but in '61 got hired as a technician at Texas Instruments in Attleboro Ma. Stayed in the wire Division and when I became a senior Tech. moved into Research and Development until I retired in Dec. of 1996. We had three sons and they had 11 kids between them. Also have 1 Great grand son. Started wood carving and doing it in my workshop pretty much every day, keeps me busy.
