No pictures yet.


Hometown:  Buffalo, NY

Unit at Loring:  23rd ADS

First day at Loring:

We found out that none of our furniture had arrived, and had to scrounge foe a single bed and a table and chairs.  Furniture did not arrive for 3 mo. and then in an open truck in the rain.

Most memorable experience:  

Watching my first loading of a nuke in the B-52.  It was a dummy, but the T Sgt in charge of the loading didn't tell me that and kept making comments about all the things that were going wrong

Last Day at Loring:  

Mixed feelings, I knew I was going to miss the place, but my wife hated the military life and couldn't wait to leave.


What did you do after Loring:

I worked as a chemical engineer for Union Carbide until I retired in 1991.  Most of my time was spent in project management and national and international sales.
