Home Town: Knoxville, PA
Unit at Loring: 27th and 83rd
First Day at Loring: Can't really remember because it was so long ago. It was in October so I am sure there was snow. It snowed every October for the 5 years I was there.
Most Memorable Experience: "There are many. One that comes to mind was when I was taxiing a 106 from the trim pad and the aircraft was going into the SAC hanger behind our hanger. The guys opened the door and I taxied into the hanger and shut down the engine. Needless to say it got the attention of all the shops in the hanger.

One time we buried a can of hyd fluid in a snow bank along with an old fatigue shirt when the snowblower came by and hit it the snow turned red and the shirt came out causing the driver to almost have a heart attack thinking he had hit somebody.

Loring was a lot of fun!!"
Last Day at Loring:
