Hometown: Pittsburgh, PA

Unit at Loring: 42nd FMS


First day at LoringI arrived in early autum 1961.  It hadn't gotten cold yet.


Most memorable experience: We were stuck out on the Ramp, in order to keep warm we crawled into the compartment of a Light unit (NF-1 ?).  We all were a lot smaller then, and fell asleep.  When we woke up and found a B-52 parked next to us and it was not unloaded yet, so a CDF guard was there.  The look on his face when we all climbed out was priceless.


Last Day at Loring: I left in February 1965.  I remember the day was clear but cold.  Looking back I was ready to go.  Four Loring winters were enough and I had a good idea of what I wanted to do "back in the states".


What did you do after Loring: Went to school and became a licensed airplane mechanic.  I worked for TWA and AA.  Still work on old airplanes after my retirement for the airlines.
