Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. James Edmond Fechet was the Chief of the United States Army Air Corps in 1927-1931. Men he had selected and worked with both on his staff and in other top Air Corps positions became key leaders of the United States Army Air Forces in World War II. Born at Fort Ringgold, Texas, in 1877, his military experience began with his youth as an Army Infantry officer's son living at various frontier stations in the West. He left the University of Nebraska in 1898 in his third year as a mechanical engineering student to serve as an enlisted man in the Spanish-American War. Wounded seriously at San Juan Hill in Cuba, Fechet recovered and applied for a commission in the cavalry. After being commissioned in 1900, Fechet for the next six years served in many cavalry assignments, including service in Hawaii, against the insurgents in the Philippines, and on the Punitive Expedition into Mexicoshow more
