Loren graduated from Westbrook High School in 1965.  Later that year he joined the United States Airforce in which he spent the majority of his 4-year military career stationed at Fairchild Airforce Base.  While at an NCO dance Loren met Judith Miller.  They were married a short 3 months later.  Loren and Judy moved back to Loren’s hometown, Westbrook, Minnesota in the fall of 1969.  They rented, and farmed, a farm consisting of 1/2 section of land along with raising pigs and cows.
