Originally, the 601 TCS and its detachments provided early warning radar and direction-finding network to support tactical operations of USAFE and to provide navigational aid to friendly aircraft. Jim made rank of Sargent, before being discharged from the Army Air Corp 1948. He retired from Preferred Tool in Stratford as a tool and die maker in 1988.
