As a young adult, he was very academically smart and athletic, often partaking in sports. Long before the war, he joined a country club in Missouri, where he met Barnes, a young man who would later become a paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne Division. James' days at the country club reflected on his later life, preparing him for the rigorous physical tests of that of a soldier.


Jimmy attended the University of Michigan at Angliongto Creek as student TE 64-46. His adviser was Dr. McDevitt and Dean was Hirschmann. Note the C- in German. One would notice his excellence in all of his other courses, and question the poor grade he received in German. Patterson claimed he let his bullets do all the talking at that point.


He attended West Point after graduation instead of the expected Harvard, in which his family members were utterly shocked upon. He graduated third of his class and volunteered for the United States Army Air Corps.

Later life

At the end of the war, Jimmy proposed to Manon Batiste after a long relationship, but whether she accepted the proposal or not was not specified. James eventually did have at least one child though, who had a child of their own, the grandson to James, Jim Patterson, a soldier currently fighting in Afghanistan against Taliban and Al-Qaeda forces. It was revealed that Jimmy joined the Central Intelligence Agency during the Cold War, after the Office of Strategic Services had dissolved.
