Hometown:  Hampden, Maine

Unit at Loring:  42ND CES

First day at Loring:

Loring AFB was not my choice of assignment.  My first day was a bummer.  My wife and I were not prepared for 12 inches of snow still on the ground.  I had just returned from a 12 month tour in Vietnam and my wife and I and two children were not prepared for the cold wninter month of March.

But we soon acclimated and adjusted to the true "way life should be".

Most memorable experience:  

The entire time that I lived and worked at Loring was my favorite story.  I worked and met many wonderful people, both millitary and civilian

Last Day at Loring:  

I retired from the USAF in August 1980. We moved to Limestone where we lived until 1997.  From 1980 on I worked for the Federal government in Maine for 14 years and New Mexico for 9 more years. I am now retirted living in Hampden, Maine.


What did you do after Loring:

I have traveled at least once a year to Europe for the past 20 years and enjoy visiting my Mother in El Paso, Texas as often as I can.
