Summary
Joseph Pearlman was born August 28, 1939, in Jersey City, NJ. He grew up in Brooklyn, NY. Mr. Pearlman went to college at Brooklyn College and was in the Air Force ROTC. He graduated with a B.A. in history, and got his commission as a 2nd lieutenant. He was called to active duty October 2, 1961 and reported to the 4241st Strategic Wing at Seymour Johnson AFB, Goldsboro, NC, as a member of the security police. He was part of a combat defense squadron that was responsible for the physical security for B-52s and DC-135s that were on alert during the Cold War. While there, he was operations officer, and was commanding officer for about six months. He then became a flight officer when a new commander filled the role. After three years at Seymour Johnson, he was released from active duty on October 1, 1964. He went into the inactive reserves. In June of 1968 he was notified that he had been promoted to captain. After that he applied to join a covert Air Force intelligence group, and got a position as a human intelligence officer. He then got additional training and went into regular Air Intelligence. He briefed pilots during simulated exercises on any risks and enemy equipment that they might encounter during simulated missions. He did tours at Elgin AFB, FL (where he worked on the Blue Flag exercise); Wendover Army Airfield, UT; the Defense Intelligence Agency in Washington, D.C; and Ft. Belvoir, Fairfax County, VA (where he analyzed debriefings of Air Force POWs who came out of Vietnam and North Vietnam). Concurrently with these tours, he got his M.A. in secondary education in social studies and his PhD in higher education administration and history. In June of 1982 he took a civilian job working for the Department of the Air Force. Because of his PhD, in his reserve career he was assigned to the Joint Military Intelligence College as a course director. He later became the Intelligence Director for Central Command. After he made lieutenant colonel he was assigned to the Intelligence Department, as chief of the Analysis Branch, supervising 40 analysts. His last tour as an active reservist was at the Headquarters Air Force, in Plans and Policy. He retired in 1989 with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel
