No Pictures Yet
Home Town: Sturgeon Bay, Wi
Unit at Loring: 42 AMS Instruments
First Day at Loring: Cold February night arrival.  My sponsor was on leave so I had to figure things out for myself.  First day at the shop, a buck sargent walks up to me (i was new A1C), he grabs me by the nuts and asks the other guys in the shop, "Is he house broken yet?".  Things did get better after that.
Most Memorable Experience: I used to keep a horse off base, about five miles west.  One summer day I rode over to the base but the gate guard wouldn't let me on base. No argument worked.  As I turned around to head back on the back roads, my ride chose the perfect time to relieve her bowels.  The guard yelled at me to clean it up but I reminded him I wasn't allowed on base with the horse.
Last Day at Loring: Happiness in my rear view mirror.
What did you do after Loring? Electronics tech, then field engineer for the past 30 years.  Also a company pilot.  I have worked in over fifty countries around the world.  The training and work standards of the USAF have done me proud.
