As a little boy, Jim would watch the planes return from their missions over the skies of Europe, during the WWII conflict, and wonder, in their damaged state, how they’d be able to land at the Mitchell Field military complex next to his home. Inspired by such heroics, he would eventually become a pilot and mechanic in the first established US Army platoon that would test the use of helicopters to rescue wounded soldiers in the field of battle, during the Korean War. Each pilot’s duty was not only to fly their helicopter but also repair it in the field of conflict, if necessary. The record breaking, long running television show, Mash, depicting these Army units, left out one very important episode over the years. The one that described the hearing loss experienced by the pilots who flew these rescue copters. Jim would eventually lose all his hearing due to this, but not his vision and dedication to his family, friends and community.
