Unit at Loring: 42nd OMS Tanker Branch
First Day at Loring: 29th of March 1955, had to climb a snow bank to see the Flag Pole at HQ to sign in.
Most Memorable Experience: Watching the B-36's leave and the B-52's replace them. I was assigned as a Crew Chief on a KC-97 and then was involved with their delivery to Tinker AFB OK Depot during the pahse out. Attended FTD at Loring on the KC-135 and was assigned Crew Chief of KC-135 56-3615. Many enjoyable TDY's over time. The most important factor was getting married and having the sense to re enlist and make the AF a Career.
Last Day at Loring: Aug 8th 1962. A lot of tears & goodbye's. I had married a lady from Limestone and she was leaving family and we both were leaving AF friends. We had PCS orders to Barksdale AFB LA
