Colonel James C. Harding entered the Air Force in 1956 as a distinguished graduate of the Penn State University Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) program where he was also selected as the outstanding Air Force ROTC cadet.  His military career covered a variety of flying assignments as well as command positions.  He served as squadron commander for a 400 person unit at Lackland AFB and as an A-1 combat squadron commander in Southeast Asia.


He is a command pilot with nearly 5,000 hours of military single-engine flying time, and a master parachutist with 69 jumps.  Colonel Harding was shot down by a SA-7 Surface-To-Air Missile (SAM) while directing a rescue mission in Vietnam in 1972.  United States Army helicopters rescued him after he successfully evaded North Vietnamese troops.  While on the ground, Colonel Harding used his survival radio to direct the rescue of his wingman, who had also been shot down on the same rescue mission.


Upon retiring from active duty on July 31, 1979, Colonel Harding entered general aviation at Nueces County Airport, Robstown, Texas.  In 1980, he turned his focus to the Air Force Junior ROTC program where he was instrumental in organizing and implementing programs in the continental United States as well as at Department of Defense schools overseas.  He had two short breaks from the Junior ROTC program from 1985 to 1987 and 1990 to 1992 when he worked as an advisor to the Royal Saudi Air Force and developed a professional education program for Saudi Air Force officers.  Colonel Harding retired from the Air Force Junior ROTC program in 1998 to take up citrus tree farming in Bayview, TX.  He sold his Texas tree farm and started another tree farm in Huntingdon, TN in 2001.  He also continued teaching as a substitute in Carroll County.  He retired from teaching in 2009 to devote full attention to his family tree farm.  He is an accomplished public speaker and has extensive writing experience.  He is a lifetime member of 17 national service organizations.
