Hometown:  MONTROSE

Unit at Loring:  42D SUPPLY SQUADRON

First day at Loring:

When I processed in the 2d Lieutenant told me my AFSC Code 29150 was overstaffed and offered me a reassignment to another job. I was newly married and readily accepted an assignment as Chief Clerk with the 42d Supply Squadron which meant no nights or weekends.

Most memorable experience:  

My wife and I lived in Caribou.  We had a blizzard on New Years Day 1968.  I watched football bowl games until around 10 P.M.  I then shoveled out my driveway.  I remember finishing and noting how nice of a job I had done (full moon).  No snow with clear skies.  I went to bed about 1 A.M.  I woke up at 5 A.M and put on the coffee and looked out.  It had snowed again and I could not see where I had shoveled.  It had completely refilled the driveway.

Last Day at Loring:  

I hadn't been at Loring that long.  To be honest I was happy to be leaving SAC.


What did you do after Loring:

I discharged from Loring and returned to Pennsylvania where my family resided.  I got a job with the Department of Defense and worked for over 28 years.  My job was a Quality Assurance Specialist.  Ironically, I inspected flight controls and other aircraft parts.  I retired in 1993 and I now reside in Ocala, Florida.
