Introductory Profile: About: James Fitzpatrick

The person that I am interviewing is my step-grandfather, James Fitzpatrick. He is an easy-going retired electrician, and I heard stories about how he used to be in the military from my step-dad. I got in touch with him and he seemed okay about doing the interview. I enjoyed learning about his time in the service.

James Fitzpatrick is a retired military electrician. On top of being an electrician in the military, he came back home to Manchester, Connecticut and continued that work as a career. He was stationed on the Wheelus Air Base in Tripoli, Libya. He was stationed there in 1956.

The interview had an overall theme of understanding.
