No pictures yet.


Hometown:  Bellflower, CA

Unit at Loring:  42 CES, Fire Dept

First day at Loring:  I remember Ted Crenshaw, also known as "Tired".  He was the Asst Station Capt at Crash Fire.  He along with Mac, Donnelly, Stickney, Bud Hallet and good ol John Cormier made me feel welcomed by having me pull line standby at 1am.  LOL.  Great place to work in all seriousness.  Had a ball.

Most memorable experience:   I was riding primary rescue on Christmas Eve of 1971 and right at midnight during a silent prayer, our mic went off with a 10-10-10, major fuel spill in one of the hangers.  We were up til 4am.

Last Day at Loring:   Not much... Just getting ready to go to Viet Nam / Thailand


What did you do after Loring: As much as I can.  Married, own a business, have kids.  A great life with a great wife.
