JAMES D. KULA
Captain - United States Air Force
Shot Down: July 29, 1972
Released: March 29, 1973
I was born in Manchester, New Hampshire and was brought up there until I was
eighteen. I then entered the Air Force Academy and graduated in 1969. I went
to pilot training at Laredo Air Force Base, Texas and then to RTU at George
Air Force Base, California, in the F-4. After serving a year at Seymour Air
Force Base, North Carolina, I went to Southeast Asia.
I am glad to be home and proud to be an American.
Colonel James Kula is still active in the United States Air Force. He and
his wife Jane reside in Arizona.
