    Interesting that in the full-length pre-war photo, he appears to have stripes on his sleeves.
    And of further interest, he is wearing glasses, so he could not have been a pilot.......!
    Regards,

    I figured that he wasn´t a pilot
    That means the photo?
    thanks

    Yes. The ID is to the Army Air Corps branch only, and not a pilot licence.
    He was ground based, but no mention there of what he does.

    It looks like he is wearing a pre-war type uniform in the full length shot
    that may be from ROTC (Officer Training) a Technical School or Basic.
    Very unusual boots - but perhaps not unusual for that time period !

    You need to get a couple of 'winged propellers' and 'US' insignia which
    were worn by AAF Officers on the lapel. These would not be the type
    on a roundel - those are for enlisted men ! And perhaps an
    'American Campaign' ribbon bar, since you don't know
    if he went overseas................
    Regards,
