While preparing for his first combat missions in Vietnam, Jim was involved in a helicopter crash which resulted in severe back and shoulder injuries.  He now has two artificial shoulders.

Jim was active in the US Army for 11 years, and continued in the Army Reserves for another 16 years. He retired from the US Army in 1993 as a Chief Warrant Officer 4.

He received the Bronze Star, the Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry with Silver Star, 35 air medals and numerous other awards and decorations for combat.
