Cohn flew with both General Chappy James and with Colonel Joe Kittinger, and received two citations from President Eisenhower for dead stick landings of North American F-100s that had suffered flame outs. During the late 1950s, Cohn worked with Major Howard Johnson on parabolic trajectory and human factors in space flight.
