Stationed in Clovis, N.M, Jim Courtney served in the U.S. Air Force as an Integrated Avionic Technician. Many in his family had served in our Armed Forces, laying the path for Jim to follow in their footsteps.
Jim worked on F-111D Fighter/Bombers, specifically the communication, navigation, and penetration electronics on the jets. A highly technical position, Jim learned the importance of attention to detail and to strive for excellence, overcoming all obstacles and difficulties that presented themselves.
“Defeat is not an option under any circumstance,” said Jim. “You always find a way to get the job done no matter what.”
