Well fellow Loring Members, Life Members, Officers of the LMHC, Veterans, Friends and anyone else, the time has come.
Tomorrow at 5pm marks the 25th anniversary of the closure of Loring AFB. Hard to believe just like that 25 years has come and gone. I know many of us miss it very much, and we are all very grateful for this years activities.
Sept 30, 2019 at 515pm, I will start flying 25 flags over Loring. We have 4 poles that will each hold an American
flag and each one will be marked with a small number on it in black magic marker so they will correspond with the numbered
certificate that will go with it. The reason for only the 25 is because of the closure. Others have asked that we fly more over the
base that will not have certificate. We will do that too but at another time.
If you would like to have the chance of owning one of these memorable flags, as many other do, it is simple process.
send your name to me, or add it to the fb group on the link, and I will add you to the list. When I am done in the coming week
I will draw 25 names, in lots of 5 each till we are done. If your name gets pulled, you will have 1 week to get me the money,
or the flag is back up for grabs, no exceptions to this. The cost of each flag is $50.The reason for doing it this was is for fairness.
Thank you all,
The Moose is Always Loose on Loring A.F.B.25 American Flags were flown. Congrats to those that won their flag and paid the $50 for the flag. Was a great fundraiser, you helped us raise $1000+

OUR CENTER DOES NOT KEEP RECORDS ON PEOPLE THAT SERVED AT LORING AFB.
WE DO NOT KNOW WHO SERVED WHAT YEARS, AND WE HAVE NO WAY OF KNOWING THAT. THE USAF HAS THAT IN RECORDS, BUT YOU WOULD HAVE TO SUBMIT FOR EACH PERSON'S RECORDS AND HAVE A REASON TO USE THEM.
SORRY WE CAN'T HELP YOU TRACK DOWN PEOPLE NOR DO WE KNOW WHO FATHERED WHAT CHILD AND WHERE THEY LIVED. SORRY, BUT WE WISH YOU LUCK IN TRACKING
DOWN YOUR BIRTH PARENT.
IF YOU NEED RECORDS TRY THE
UNITED STATES AIR FORCE
ST. LOUIS MISSOURI.
Loring is a place near and dear to our hearts. Many loved Loring and loved the times they had and shared at Loring. It was a city within itself. A place were people made life long friends, where they lived and worked, cried and laughed. It was also a place people hated due to its extreme temperatures, the northern tier area in which it was housed and because it was so rural. This reason made Loring that much better due to its outdoor activities and the snow, it really depended on who you were and your lifestyle. That truly was what determined whether you loved Loring AFB, or hated it.
But ultimately, Loring is a place that even today, draws people back from all across America. They come to share it with their family, their friends and to reminisce on what was once the height of their lives and careers. Cold or not, frozen or eaten by bugs, we loved Loring!
WELCOME BACK TO LORING A.F.B., MAINE, ENJOY OUR PAGE.
"Loring relics and the remains of Loring, stand as a constant reminder of what the world once endured and the constant need for vigilance always. Having people on stand by waiting on the world to see what the next operation, or war was a thankless job. Never knowing, if the next klaxton alert would be for an exercise, or for a real world operational mission, kept us on our "A" game."
"Loring proved that it was possible to scramble fighters, or bombers, and have ready re-fuelers, pilots and crews within reach at a moments notice. Loring was a city, within a city. A hospital, BX, commissary, bowling alleys and so much more. This is one of the reasons that our Center is in existence.
When military people share a common bond, a camaraderie like no other, we tend to be a tight knit group, that backs each other up, and come together for the mission, for each other and for our families.
"Families at Loring lived side by side in very close proximity, and shared their lives together.
Many became friends for years some a lifetime. Kids grew up together and were military brats together. They played together and were on sports teams, they had the youth center and teen center to enjoy and the countless activities both on Loring and in the local area."
"This is some of the reasons I am so proud to have lived, worked, and served at Loring AFB. I am proud of the legacy we left, the time we shared and the gift of life long friends. Since we have moved back, I've been proud to be part of The Loring Military Heritage Center. I love to hear the stories, and see the look on faces of a family when they see their family members staring back at them in a book or photo, or just to see their name in a book, or flier.
"I've seen old veterans breakdown at the sight of themselves at 19 or 20 in a photo. I've seen children say that is the biggest smile my Dad ever wore. It is a very emotional and very moving experience. The tears shed are of pride, honor and of what their lives were.
Thank you for sharing your stories and lives with all of us, it is our pleasure to serve you"
