Hometown:  Camden,NJ now Middletown, DE

Unit at Loring:  42 Combat Support Group

First day at Loring:

Went to the Disaster Preparedness Office in bldg 5050 and met Mr. Richard Smart the DP Officer.  Also worked with Sgt Ray Douglas, SSgt Tom Malone, SRA Bertha Heath and two Reserve Augmentation Officers Major John Krass and Captain Nelson Starbranch and Disaster Preparedness Support Team (DPST) members from various base units and sections.

Most memorable experience:  

Listening to the SPs on the security radio net sounding like a bunch of scared kids when the strange lights appeared near the WSA.  Displaying our Neuclar Biological Chemical Warfare defense equipment and Mobile Command Post during open houses and the Bicentenial Celebration.   Was in awe of how the RAF Vulcan delta wing (actualy all wing) bomber could manuver when it did flyovers in 1976.  Responding to a FB 111 crash and one of the DPS Team members (a supply guy) took off on one of the snowmobiles.

Last Day at Loring:  

I felt like I was rewarded for surviving three years because my next assignment was a cherry.   Kolsas, Norway (outside of Oslo)

 

What did you do after Loring:

4 years in Norway.  1 year at Davis-Monthan.  Retired at D-M in 1983.  Settled down in Delaware.  Earned a BS in Accounting and Business Administration.  Currently working for the State of Delaware in the Department of Health & Social Services, Division of Medicaid & Medical Assistance, Accounting Unit.  Bee and I visited NAC and the Loring Center in early September 2010.  If it weren’t for the super people we encountered on our trip it would have been very depressing trip down memory lane.
