Hometown: Ft. Worth, TX

Unit at Loring: 42 Security Police Squadron


First day at LoringLeft Bangor (My Original Home) going up 95 and hit Sherman and it started to snow and by the time I got to Loring, there was a foot of new snow and the parking lot of the BAQ hadn't be plowed and cars were parked every which way and had a hard time finding a parking spot.  Then I had to find out which building and which of the building was the BAQ (Signs hadn't been invented yet).  Got a room and woke up the next morning and found my car buried (it was a VW Beatle).  After I got unburied, I went to the Sq and signed in and the rest is history.


Most memorable experience: Nothing sticks out.  I remember going hunting every year and most the time with a group of friends.  I can remember one time having to go to the old 900 area and finding that one of the bunkers had been turned in a "pot" growing factory.  Then another time during the winter and after hunting season going out to the 900 area finding in one of the bunkers two deer and moose hung up and they weren't that a day or so after they were killed.


Last Day at Loring: My very last day at Loring AFB (Mar 1982) was very exciting for me due to the assignment I was going too.  But, unlike most, I was somewhat sad to leave.  The people I worked with and met during my two tours were the best I knew in my whole AF career.


What did you do after Loring: I finished my career in the AF and retired at the end of July 1991.
