LORING – In 2010, a group of 5 veteran’s stationed at Loring AFB, ME during the 1950′s sat down over a 6-month period and recalled the base. Their recollections across various topics included the B-36, B-52 bombers, the community support, and construction activities on the base. Also included were special operations directly affecting national security (declassified) such as Operation Head Start and Operation Reflex. Their memories serve to remind us of the strategic importance of the very first Air Force Base to host nuclear weapons.
