Home Town:    Philadelphia, PA
Unit at Loring:    69th Bomb Squad
First Day at Loring:    Lots of Snow
Most Memorable Experience:    "Squad alerts; we had to sleep in our cloths and stay in a special barracks. When the alarm went off we raced out to our assigned B52. Fired her up and ready to attack.
I think this was most serious during Lebanon crisis, 1958. H bombs were loaded, we were ready.

I also remember the long drive from through the state of Maine.

Once we had a Moose run onto the flight line."
