Home Town:    jefferson NC
   
Unit at Loring:    transportation
   
First Day at Loring:    I drove from NC to Loring. It started snowing about one hour away from the base and I was in a rear wheel drive car. Two hours later and 7 inches of snow on the ground I was wandering what I had got my self into. By the time I checked into the base and to the dorms it had snowed 8 more inches. The next morning I searched for my car in the parking lot but it couldn't be found. It had snowed so much over night it had completely covered my firebird. Someone noticed me commenting about my car and said welcome to Loring.
   
Most Memorable Experience:    I met my wife and we are still married today.Me and my wife won senior airman below the zone and got to ride in a blackhawk helicopter. I got to be part of the best Transportation Squadron they where.
   
Last Day at Loring:    Very sad, I had made a lot of friends and hated to say good by knowing I would never see them again. I drove back to NC and stayed a few days the flew to Okinawa Japan.
   
What did you do after Loring?    I have retired and live close to Myrtle Beach SC, I have two children boy 14 and daughter 21.
